Brenau Scholar Emma Jaczko

Crunching numbers, making waves

For Brenau Scholar Emma Jaczko, 18, it’s all about the big picture. An accounting major, the McIntosh High School grad from Peachtree City, Georgia, has long been fascinated by math, science and logic. She loves to evaluate and analyze, determining the costs and benefits of a decision or operation. She was awarded scholarships from the University of Georgia to attend its summer accounting program twice. However, after running some ROI analyses of her own, she decided the best fit for her was Brenau.

In addition to schoolwork, Jaczko walked on, or in this case “dove in,” to a position on the Golden Tigers swim team, ranked No. 2 in the nation in the first poll of the 2015-16 season.

“My parents have instilled a strong work ethic within me, so I find people who work hard truly inspiring,” the Scotch Plains, New Jersey, native says. “I have always been interested in budgeting operations and figuring out how people can get the most out of their work. I hope to gain experiences and knowledge at Brenau that will benefit my career as well as my everyday life. I know the faculty at Brenau is dedicated and will challenge me to reach my highest potential.”
