A biography for young readers chronicling the life of the pioneering Colorado educator and founder of the Emily Griffith Opportunity School.

The school opened in 1916 "for all who wish to learn" and continues to educate young and old today. The school was the first to offer adult education as we know it today, and its founder must be considered among Colorado's most influential individuals for the opportunities she created and lives she touched.

"Emily serves as a role model for our Children and her sense of responsibility and ability to problem solve as well as her qualities of a positive attitude and loyalty speak loudly throughout the pages of this book."
— Kari Gomez-Smith, Public Relations Manager - Emily Griffith Opportunity School
