As of Wednesday night, there are thirty-five beautiful new flamin’ GATAs! The girls were transformed from little baby Flames…
…to members of this long-standing sisterhood with the gift of their brand new jerseys:
You can see all the lovely new faces sing on the GATA fountain for the first time as members (glad to have their shoes on, in the freezing cold!) with their sisters on GATA Shayla’s Facebook page.
Jennifer Ellison, GATA sponsor, is a woman of many skills, not the least of which is her flair for event design. As ACU’s director of University Events, she makes miracles happen. Her success has brought her recognition from the National Association of Professional Women, which named her Woman of the Year.
“I’m thrilled to be named Woman of the Year by the NAPW,” says Jennifer. “It’s always exciting to be recognized by peers, but to be given this award by other professional women who value quality and integrity is truly an honor.”
The NAPW is an invitation-only association of female executives, professionals and entrepreneurs from across the United States, spanning almost every industry, according to their website.
Always humble, Jennifer hasn’t told many people – so of course, we want to shout it to the world! Congratulate her if you see her, GATAs!
The final count is in — thirty-seven girls have donned the red lipstick and white button-downs of the GATA Flame, joining us in our ninetieth year of rich legacy! A full afternoon of teas, four rockin’ rushes, and one crazy Bid Night later, these girls are revving up for pledging.
