PRESCOTT--Emelia Rohl loves to write. 

Since the eighth grade, Rohl has been at work on a novel she describes as “very dark, scary and creepy.” Progress has been made to the point she will be working with an editor this summer.

On a personal level, Rohl is taking the next chapter of her life as the Prescott High School salutatorian graduates this month and will attend UW-Madison this fall.

Rohl said her first choice for school was an Ivy League college, but when that didn’t work, Madison was a good alternative.

“It’s as close as prestigious as one can get here in Wisconsin,” she said. She added when she toured the campus it felt like a “new adventure.”

“I’m excited. I wanted something different and a big city will be the perfect thing for me,” she continued.

Throughout her high school years, Rohl was a member of the student council, National Honor Society and forensics team.

While proud of those accomplishments, she smiled even more being a member of the St. Croix Stars 4-H Club, where she was president and secretary, during her nine years there, along with her two-and-a-half horses. The horses are a quarter horse mare, an off-track thoroughbred and the half is a pony.
