A small town in Kansas that is home to Emporia State University. ESU is one of the top ranked schools in the United States for producing teachers. The ESU girls basketball team (The Lady Hornets) were the Div II NCAA basketball champions in 2010. Emporia is also the home of William Allen White and the founding city of Veteran's Day.
Emporia has a parade on Veteran's Day. It's awesome because all the ESU students get the day off.
