2021 Feature Twirler - Emelia Adam

Hi Everyone! My name is Emelia Adam, and I am from Hamburg, Pennsylvania. Joining the Laker Marching Band as the Feature Twirler is super exciting for me! Since I started twirling at age five, I have dreamt about this opportunity a million times. Now the dream is becoming a reality at Grand Valley State University!

As a competitive twirler, I have competed at local, state, national, and international competitions. Throughout my years, I have earned numerous awards such as, 2019 Pennsylvania State Two Baton Champion, 2019 Junior Miss Majorette of the North Atlantic Royalty, and AAU Junior Olympic All-Around Elite Champion 2019.

I am an incoming freshman at GVSU majoring in Elementary Education. I can’t wait to make the GV community my home!

ANCHOR UP!
