HER "THESPIAN" sweater hints at Emilie Schnabel's in- terests: performing arts. Once she graduates from high school, however, she might study creative writing. High School Spotlight:: Emilie studies on stage By REBECCA WELLS Artistic expression in various forms is one of the areas where Emilie Schnabel excels in school. She has played flute in the march- ing band all four years at Shelton High School and has led the band as its drum major tbr the last two years. "I love it! It's a lot of work but it's really worth it," she says. Emilie also sings in the alto section of the high school's Cham- ber Singers. This is er first year performing in the elite choir. "I finally had room in my sched- ule this year, so I tried out,', she explains. Emilie really likes the choir director, Paul Nakhla, and appreciates his passion for mu- sic. SHE ALSO LOVES the fact that she can earn class credit fi)r singing at school. "I just love sing- ing and I'd always wanted to try it at school but I didn't have room because of my required classes and I was finally able to sign up for it," she adds. So far the choir has performed for Governor Christine Gregoire, as well as at a ceremony for the national Christmas tree. Emilie says Gregoire invited the choir back to sing at a Christmas party she hosts at the governor's man- sion in Olympia. "That was pretty fun," Emilie recalls. The choir also sang at A1- derbrook Resort and Spa in Union and at the Christmas tree light- ing event in downtown Shelton. This year the marching band has done really well, placing first, second and third in various com- petitions, as well as earning sixth place out of about 30 bands jn one event. The band's color guard was named Best Auxiliary at one com- petition. EMILIE'S ARTISTIC and leadership flair doesn't stop there. She's secretary of the French Club at the high school and co-presi- dent of the Drama Club. Last month she played a part in the play Rumors, which was staged what happens between Before and After? our meetings. People approve or people doubt me knowing they can't do much about me. in the Shelton High School Audi- torium. "It's a lot of fun. It's a small cast but it's been a big adventure," she said during an interview just pri- or to the play's opening night. Emilie has also taken part in the high school's annual musical productions, and has appeared twice in Night of Musical The- atre. Last year she sang two solos in the musical theatre produc- tion. "That was pretty exciting," she says. For credit toward her senior project this year, EInilie plans to co-direct the high school's annual drama awards presentation this spring. EMILIE HAS also been on the Mason County Forest Festival Royalty Court, twice as Princess of Hemlock and now as the reign- ing Princess of Douglas Fir. She hopes to participate in the Forest Festival pageant again this year. Now that she's a high-school se- nior, she's finally eligible to try out for Queen of the Forest. While she is very active in per- forming arts, Emilie doesn't ig- nore her academics. She was in the top 10 percent of her class in academics as a junior and main- tains a grade-point average of 3.67 which has earned her mem- bership in the local chapter of Na- tional Honor Society. She already has earned a couple of college credits by completing English 101 and 102 as a junior. Next year, she might attend George Fox University in Oregon. She has already applied to the school and is awaiting notifica- tion of her acceptance. "I really want to go to a Chris- tian university and I've researched a lot," she explains. George Fox also appeals to her because it has an attractive, vibrant campus and will provide plenty of opportuni- ties for her to become involved in interesting activities. EMILIE WORKS at the First Baptist Church of Shelton and volunteers along with Kimmi Beeby as Sunday school teachers for a third-grade class. Emilie's parents, Richard and Virginia Schnabel, also attend First Bap- tist. Though she hasn't quite made up her mind yet, Emilie is con- sidering a major in creative writ- ing and literature. "I love reading and I love literature and just be- ing able to create characters and express different things through them and go anywhere you want is just amazing," she explains.
