As we approach the holidays, we’d like to take sometime to appreciate our Alumni!
Our Alumni have helped us become the Black Gold you know and love. We are incredibly thankful for them! Next up, we have Shmem (Emily McKay)!
Emily marched Black Gold in 2007;through 2012. She is now earning her BS in Geography Resources and Environmental Studies at Texas State! When asked what her favorite memory was from the years she marched, she said, “All of the Black Gold’s history nights!”
Her advice for new members is, “Take lots of pictures! You think you’ll remember things, after so many years, it becomes much harder. Your building lifelong relationships. So, as often as possible, record the memories you are creating.”
Thank you Emily for your continuous support and help to mold Black Gold into what it is!
