Elizabeth attended the University of Missouri, the same school her father graduated from in 1968. Elizabeth participated in Dance Marathon, Student Athletic Board, Kappa Delta Sorority and was constantly volunteering any chance she could get. She even volunteered to be a mascot for our local Children’s Hospital!

With over 10,000 downtown Dallas residents who use the club for membership, events, and socializing she has done everything from brining in new members to serving cocktails on Thursday nights.
