Jenny, center, and Zeta Mu/MIT members during recruitment, September 2001.
Jenny Nichols, Psi/Wisconsin, was hired as an educational leadership consultant from 2001-2002. Jenny traveled full-time and visited a total of 18 states over the course of nine months! In addition, Jenny assisted with the reestablishment of Beta Theta/Idaho in the fall of 2001. Currently, Jenny works for the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Community Health and Education, assisting with the implementation of health education in Milwaukee public schools. She serves the Fraternity as a college district director, and is a member of the Milwaukee Alumnae Chapter.

Having lived in Wisconsin for most of her life, Jenny found the ELC position to be the perfect opportunity to see the country. In her work as an ELC, she developed independence, professionalism, and travel savviness. Additionally, one of the greatest abilities Jenny feels she cultivated is remaining composed in the face of adversity or difficult situations.

During her travels, Jenny recalls many notable and memorable experiences visiting different schools and cities that have stayed with her. Jenny was on the road during the terror attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. She recounts this as a terrifying and surreal experience, and remembers the relief after learning the entire ELC team was safe.

Looking back on her year as an ELC, Jenny feels that one of her biggest takeaways will always be her deep connection to Theta. "The friendships I've made as a Theta volunteer are so meaningful to me and keep me going when things get tough - in my volunteer, personal, and professional life."

Aquene Kenerson, Epsilon Psi/Richmond, will serve Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity during the next school year as a second-year educational leadership consultant.
