Meet Mary Beth, Texas A&M!
On her first visit, Mary Beth experienced just how strong the bond between sisters can be. During a formal chapter meeting, a slideshow began playing. “I had absolutely no idea what was going on. I thought they were doing a spotlight on seniors, but after the first few slides, I noticed the pictures were of the same two girls. At the end of the slideshow, the girl who created it asked her big to be her bridesmaid in her wedding. It was such a special moment to witness.”
A fifth generation Kappa, Mary Beth is no stranger to the values and leadership that comes with being a Kappa. Her great grandmother, Grace Duff Snider, was initiated into Omega Chapter, Kansas, in 1894, and for almost 120 years, her family has been motivated to drive the vision and ideals of our Founders into an optimistic future.
A former Marshal and Vice President-Organization, Mary Beth was an active leader during her collegiate years. After meeting former Leadership Consultants and learning more about the position, she was inspired to apply. “Traveling, working with college women and leadership development are all things I am passionate about, so I felt that the job description was written for me.”
As an international business and Spanish major, she learned about different cultures and interacting with people from around the world, as she studied in Spain. “Doing this job has put what I learned in college into action. You work with women from all over, with different backgrounds and personalities, and you have to learn to relate to everyone, no matter the difference.”
Despite the differences, Mary Beth has bonded with each chapter she has visited. “I would be lying if I said I haven’t gotten emotional leaving a time or two.” Her former chapters send her letters of thanks and appreciation, confirming that she made a difference and helped the chapter grow. “I underestimated how much those words of affirmation would mean to me. They help get you through being away from family and friends for extended periods of time. I’ve grown to care about every chapter and member and value our bond.”
“Just as I found out on that first visit, Leadership Consultants have an incredible group of women who support you the entire time and you soon find out that it is the opportunity of a lifetime you don’t want to pass you by.”
