Emma Przybyslawski Class Of 2010
Emma is the daughter of Tony (class of 1976) and Priscilla and spent her childhood counting the number of states she lived in as a military brat. While at the Academy, she loved living in Cadet Squadron 19 and eventually led the Wolverines as Squadron Commander to Outstanding Squadron of the Year. Upon graduation, Emma was commissioned as a special operations intelligence officer and spent her Air Force career either overseas supporting counterdrug efforts or counterterrorism operations in the Middle East. She decided to separate from the Air Force in 2016 and started her civilian career in the high-tech industry. Emma has focused her high-tech career on bringing advanced technology solutions to various Air Force mission sets and senior leaders. In her free time, Emma has a passion for traveling, food, spending time with family and friends, and sports – but all of those things are best enjoyed with her husband and Air Force pilot Chris Spach and their Bernese Mountain Dog, Gunner. She competes nationally as a triathlete and Crossfit athlete and is always looking forward to the next competitive event on her calendar.
I have served on our Association of Graduates Board of Directors for the past four years. Throughout that time, it has become clear a significant gap is expanding amongst the evergrowing population and demographics of our Academy’s graduate community. I feel very strongly that it is our duty as an organization to close this gap by ensuring a broad spectrum of services are provided by the AOG; and that our purpose, mission, and value are relevant to all stages of graduate life. We must bring our community together in order to reach the full potential the AOG has as an alumni association – one easily worthy of national notoriety. Our graduates are extremely proud to be from our Academy and we need to leverage each of their unique capabilities and individual resources, time or money, for the good of our institution. To do this, we must readdress our value proposition to the entire graduate community and its Board of Directors must include the thought leadership of diverse graduates who want to be inclusive of all graduates. And this is why I want to extend my tenure on the board – I am the right graduate, at the right time, to take what I have learned in the past four years and apply it to the betterment of our AOG.
