About Emily


Emily Marie Herr, an SCSU student, was tragically killed in a car accident on October 27, 2006.  Emily was studying to be an elementary education teacher, and in her memory, Mary Dank’s Fall 2007 Block 3 class dedicated a collection of children's books to the CTC.

Emily’s Collection in the CTC includes some of Emily’s favorite books to read when she was a child, as well as books chosen by the students in Mary Dank’s Block 3 class.  Many of these students knew Emily personally, and thanks to their commitment, Emily’s memory and her legacy of a love for children’s books lives on.
