Brianna "Bri" Powell | Class of 2022 Student Speaker

Bri Powell is a little nervous but mostly excited to deliver the student remarks at Estrella Mountain Community College’s (EMCC) Spring 2022 Commencement Ceremony. Especially considering she almost didn’t audition for the part. Thankfully, she turned her car around before leaving campus and we're excited to hear what she has to say.
Bri is graduating with an Associate in Arts. She’s utilizing Northern Arizona University’s (NAU) 90/30 Program and is on track to officially become a Lumberjack next summer or fall. She’ll then complete her Bachelor’s in Applied Human Behavior online at NAU.
Completing her degree at EMCC is a tremendous milestone because Bri struggles with Dyscalculia, a learning difficulty that affects a person’s ability to do basic arithmetic such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. From second through 12th grade, she received special education services in the form of an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
