Lufkin native, Emily Thornton joined Angelina Beautiful/Clean as the Executive Director in the summer of 2020. After graduating from Stephen F. Austin State University in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Mass Communications, Emily desired the opportunity to give back to her East Texas home.
With a passion in public service, Emily knew AB/C was the perfect fit as she moved forward in her career. Her goal as Executive Director is to unite the community, encourage others to make the environment a priority, and leave Angelina County a little cleaner and greener than she found it.
Prior to AB/C, Emily worked as a Graphic Designer and Content Strategist at Savvy, the Agency. At SFASU, she served as the Vice President and Advertising Coordinator of SFASU Dancers Against Cancer, which is an organization that raises cancer awareness and money for cancer related research. She is a Lufkin High School graduate.
When she’s not making Angelina County a better place, Emily can be found listening to the latest Taylor Swift album, working on her next art project, learning a new dance, or sipping on her favorite cup of coffee, White Mocha.
