Hello, my name is Emily LeMay. I am a seventeen year old senior at East Carteret High School in Beaufort. I am the daughter of Charles and Kim LeMay. I am the youngest of three siblings. I have an older sister, Maggie and older brother, CJ. I am from Atlantic, NC. I have lived in this “Down East” community of Carteret County all my life. I come from a long line of commercial fisherman, seafood dealers, and boat builders. In the summer months, I help at my granddaddy Dean’s seafood business with my mom, granddaddy, granny and uncle William. I enjoy taking trips to Disney World and going on cruises, especially with my uncle Charles. During my four years at East Carteret I was involved in FFA, FBLA, HOSA, SkillsUSA, NTHS, NSHSS, and BETA Club. When I was younger I played softball with my parks and rec league for 9 years and one year in middle school. Numerous times our All-star team won district championship titles and played in the state tournaments. This was such a great time for me. I was coached by some of the best coaches in the area. I learned so much from each of them. This year I am using what I learned to help coach my niece, Lydia’s softball team. My family is very important to me. I have a very large family who I love dearly. I would not be who I am without the support of each of them.
