In this new role, Emerson will be responsible for coordinating the club’s 12 events throughout the year. Some of these events include the State of the Port, Maritime Day Celebration, Student Social and USCG and CBP Appreciation Day. She will also develop and implement plans to ensure full attendance at all meetings. Emerson will also continue to chair the annual Pirate Party Fundraiser, which raises money for the Safe Harbor Boys Home located in Jacksonville.
