Congrats to these awesome ladies on their new positions! We are so proud of y'all and the impact that all of you are making in the Auburn community!
While so many of our leading women are making a big difference here in Auburn, we also have one sister who was selected by Kappa Alpha Theta's headquarters to become an Executive Leadership Consultant (ELC). Presley Townsend, we are so proud of you!

These girls are not the only Thetas making a difference this month. On March 5th, our sisters went out to serve the Auburn community as part of Auburn University's Big Event, a day-long community service project. Our girls went to a house where they raked and bagged leaves, power washed the porch, and picked up limbs and trash around the house.

Our Thetas not only worked hard this semester, they played hard as well. Earlier in the month, we had a Laser Tag sisterhood event. Crazy as it sounds, shooting your sisters with laser guns actually brings everyone closer.

Huge thanks to Cyber Zone for having us! We had a great time!
March also brought about something that only comes around every four years--Black and Gold Ball! Brigid Kane, COO, and Bailey Freeman, Events Director, did an amazing job of putting together the best Black and Gold ever! We had a swanky venue (Capital City Club of Montgomery), great food (mashed potato bar...always a winner), and everyone was dressed to impress.

Between all the studying, serving, shooting (laser tag guns, that is), and swankiness, our girls certainly merited a break. Spring Break came just in time this year, allowing these ladies to unwind and recharge for the last month of school. Our Thetas were everywhere--the beach, the Grand Canyon, even international! Spring Break was fun, but we are glad to have everyone back home on the Plains!
