Emily Stewart has an impressive record, both on the softball field and in the classroom. Emily says she was recruited to play softball, but was also drawn to The University of Findlay by the Environmental, Safety and Occupational Health Management program that aligned with her passion for the environment and goal of making a difference. She is the recipient of multiple scholarships, such as The University of Findlay’s Presidential Scholarship and the Ohio Environmental Services Industries Scholarship. Emily has maintained 16 or more credit hours each semester, and was named to the Dean’s List for three semesters. She is also a member of the student chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers.
Emily made the softball travel roster as a freshman and played in the majority of the season’s games at third base. Her first hit of her college career was also her first homerun. She then became the designated hitter and started each game. Emily was named GLIAC All-Academic Team as well as the NFCA Academic All-American team for 2013 and 2014.
Emily has completed three internships, including with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Northwest District Office in the Division of Air Pollution Control; as the Emergency Preparedness intern for Marathon Petroleum’s corporate office in Findlay; and served an Industrial Hygiene Co-op at the BP Husky refinery in Oregon, Ohio. Emily now works a full-time position as a Safety Advisor at the BP refinery, and continues to work part-time during her final semester of college too while juggling 16 credit hours and playing softball.
