Jessica Scarber is a 6’1’’ Middle Blocker from Powder River County District High School in Broadus, Montana. She is the daughter of Henry and Stephanie Scarber.
Jessica attends PRCDHS with an accumulative GPA of 3.74 and has received various academic awards including being inducted into the National Honor Society during her junior year. She will be beginning her fourth year of varsity volleyball at PRCDHS as well as her fourth year of varsity track. Jessica has received recognition for having the most blocks in her conference for both her sophomore and junior years. During her junior year, she was named 2nd Team All-Conference and hopes to do even better her senior year.
Jessica is grateful for all her coach, Kimber Emmons, has done to support and encourage during her High School volleyball career, and she is extremely excited for the opportunity to play volleyball at the collegiate level. She knows she will be challenged and pushed and looks forward to improving her athletic skills.
MSU-Northern is Jessica’s number one choice for a number of reasons. First, she really likes the small town atmosphere of Havre and the support the community offers collegians. Second, after meeting the team and being able to scrimmage with them, Jessica has experienced the feeling of being part of Northern’s volleyball “family” and is excited to become a part of it. Finally, after meeting Coach Huebsch and getting to know him as a person and a coach, Jessica believes that Coach Huebsch is definitely the right coach for her to become the best athlete that she can become. She hopes to pursue a career in cardiac rehab with a major in Nursing.
