Ellie Ward is a sophomore majoring in Secondary Education in Earth Science and minoring in Dance. She chose these curriculums because she has always been curious about science and she has been dancing for 17 years.
“I really enjoy working with kids and helping them learn about the world around them,” Ward said.
Ward has been a member of the K-State Tap Ensemble since her freshman year. She is also involved in research in the dance program.
“In the K-State Tap Ensemble I get to spend time dancing and improving my skills with some great friends I’ve meet there!” Ward said.
Along with her dance activities, Ward is an ambassador for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). She also volunteers at Marlatt Elementary School helping kids improve their reading abilities.
One of Ward’s friends that has made college more fun is Krista Everhart. Everhart and Ward met as new members in Theta.
“She was my first friend in Theta and she was my person to go to events with and watch movies on Friday nights with!” Ward said.
Ward chose Theta because she connected with the women and felt that she could be herself in Theta.
“Theta has given me a support group of amazing friends that will always be there for me no matter what kind of day I have,” Ward said. “It has given me a true home away from home.”
