He received his BBA with honors from the University of Texas, earning Outstanding Student of the Year, in 1959. Emmett served at S.M.I. Mini-Mill, the company that serves as the headquarters for C.M.C. Steel Group, and quickly went up the ranks. He was a member of America Institute of C.P.A.'s, the Financial Executive Institute and served on the Board of the Texas Association of Business as Statewide Chairman. There were endless clubs that Emmett was a member. Some of those were the San Antonio Rotary Club, President of the first Opera Club of San Antonio, President of the Social Dance Club of San Antonio and the K Club Reveler Dance Club. He was also very proud of the fact that he started the Sugarland Mission Lutheran Church in Sugarland, which quickly became a non-mission church. 50 couples joined and it grew very quickly, never having to rely on Mission for financial assistance, Praise God!!
