Katy Beth Ezell is a freshman majoring in communication sciences and disorders and minoring in leadership studies. She chose this major because she loves working with kids and helping people.
“I come from a family of educators, so I never wanted to go into a pure teaching job,” Ezell said, “but this is an amazing way to help kids get an education they may not be able to get with their speech impediment!”
In high school, Ezell played fastpitch softball and was involved with Ozone through Camp War Eagle. Through softball, she learned how to work with people better, and Ozone helped her strengthen her faith. Ozone also gave her the opportunity to get involved in her community, such as volunteering with the K2 ministry at New Heights Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This year she is excited to get more involved in Theta and Christian Challenge.
Ezell chose Theta because she could tell the women were genuine and they were people she would want to share her college experience with. She also liked to see how dedicated and passionate the women were about Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), which is Theta’s national philanthropy. Ezell is excited to share her Theta experience with a woman she met while she worked at Camp War Eagle this summer, Lizzy Martino. They were co-coaches of a team and later found out they would be attending school together at K-State.
“At K-State and Theta, I’m looking forward to the best four years of my life!” Ezell said. “I’ve literally been waiting so long to be here and now that it is here AND I got to add Theta, I know this is going to be the best four years!”
