March is a month for shaking off winter and getting back outdoors. March Calendar Girl Emma Verstraete paused by Clear Creek, west of Monett, where plants are bursting with bright green colors of spring. The daughter of Adam and Kelly Verstraete, Emma is active in speech and debate at Monett High School, having gone to state in policy debate and is presently competing in oratory and public forum debate. She was a delegate to Girls State, competes in SkillsUSA and is a member of Future Business Leaders of America. She attends St. Lawrence Catholic Church. Emma has a brother, Ben, and is the grandchild of Sue and Clem Verstraete and Judy Howell. Next fall, Emma plans to attend Lindenwood University, join the college debate circuit and study anthropology and psychology. She hopes to pursue a career as a forensic anthropologist, recovering remains of veterans missing in action in wars in Asia. [Times Photo by Murray Bishoff] [Order this photo]
