Active Alumni President

When our Alumni President, Audrey Baker is not busy registering alumni for reunion events, she is an active clogger with the Land O Lakes Country Cloggers. Audrey is in the front row on the left. For those who don’t know clogging is a dance in which the performer wears clogs and beats out a clattering rhythm on the floor. 

Rain Around the World
