Emily Keck

Environmental Science and Studies

Emily is a member of Sigma Tau Delta (English honor society) and Phi Eta Sigma (first-year honor society). Emily has maintained an extraordinarily high GPA during her time at Stetson. In addition to her stellar performance in the classroom, she completed a senior research project with a substantial, positive impact on the local community, which she presented at Stetson Showcase. For her project, titled “Volusia County History: Racial Terror and Black Resilience”, she worked closely with Volusia Remembers, a local nonprofit organization, to analyze and document instances of lynching in Volusia County and the associated displacements of Black people as a result of racial terrorism. This project required consultation with local experts, honing GIS techniques, and grappling with difficult material.

Emily's work has resulted in a public-facing story map that is part of the Volusia Remembers web presence. She pursued and completed this work by taking the initiative to apply for a Stetson SURE Grant, which she was awarded in support of her undertaking.

Environmental Science and Studies faculty members are proud of Emily’s work in the program. Emily has accepted a job offer from Guidehouse Consulting in Chicago as a consultant in their energy segment working with investors and large corporations.
