Seaman High’s Emma Eich among 19 students at the Kansas Youth Leadership Forum

Talk with Emma Eich, and some of the first things she’s bound to tell you are all of the different loves she has.

She loves playing disc golf with her dad Daniel. She loves her pets — all six of them — as well as her older and younger siblings. She loves watching “Stranger Things” and “Batman” and playing “Minecraft” with friends, when she’s not busy with school.

And oh, does she love school, and she even misses it in the two months since she graduated from Seaman High. She misses singing in the school choir, and playing on the school’s Vikings United teams — in which students with special needs and non-special needs students compete in sports like basketball, bocce ball and soccer throughout the year — as well as the school’s bowling team.

Eich loves life.
