Emma Fudacz, Managing Editor

Junior Emma Fudacz is the Managing Editor for the Blueprint, and this is her first year on the staff. Fudacz is a member of the Life of a Mustang club, a French tutor and an honor roll student. Fudacz is also involved in Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts and received her Eagle Scout award in February 2021.

During her sophomore year, Fudacz took Journalistic Expression which ignited her love for journalism and storytelling. Fudacz was on the 2021 Journalism IHSA Sectionals team as a caption writer, and was also a member of the Journalism club. She hopes to continue to learn about journalism and eventually study it in college.

Fudacz’s other hobbies include hiking, reading, playing piano, hanging out with friends and volunteering. She also has an avid interest in traveling and has a bucket list a mile long. You will most likely find Fudacz with her nose in a book or daydreaming about places she’d like to visit.
