About

Emily Greene had an amazing career in education. She spent her first 30 years with the North Kansas City School District as a second and third grade teacher. She always enjoyed her students and their families. 

Her brother was the first to attend Northwest Missouri State University. He graduated in 1963. Then Emily's daughter attended from 1996-2000, graduating in the spring of 2000. They all truly enjoyed their time on campus. All three have done very well in their careers and think highly of Northwest. 

Emily spends a lot of time with her grandchildren. She has spent the last 12 years babysitting them for their working parents or getting them off to school each day. She has plans to do this for two more years. After that, they will both be off to middle school. Her hobbies consist of working in her flower gardens and reading. She also works very hard to keep her Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority sisters connected from the four years she was at Northwest. She has held two reunions that have been very successful with sisters attending from all over the nation. The next reunion will be October 2023. The sorority reunions are held at her home in Riverside, Missouri. 

Why are you "forever green"?

"I am forever green because the time I spent on campus was amazing. I have such special memories made with my Sigma Sigma Sigma sisters. I also created other lifelong friendships and wonderful memories during my time on campus. All friendships and memories were created by campus life through organizations and activities. I had very good instructors in my classes that prepared me for a very successful career.  Northwest Missouri State University always had a very safe and fun environment in which to learn and live. 

I continue to be so proud of Northwest Missouri State University and its greatness in all areas!"
