Community Outreach Coordinator
Here at KTSW, our Community Relations department has chosen Texas State Ice Angels to be this month’s organization of the month!
This past week I had the pleasure of getting in contact with the president of Texas State Ice Angels, Jonnalys Soto. During our interview I was able to learn more about Soto’s role as president and all that goes into their awesome organization. Ice Angels is a group of young women here at Texas State University who are dedicated to supporting both the Texas State hockey team and the overall community of San Marcos.
When asking Soto about the goals of Ice Angels, she explained that their purpose was “to provide a growing space for individuals to develop personal and professional relationships.” Soto also mentioned how important it is to their organization that they encourage Texas State students to get involved with not only the hockey team here, but our entire campus as a whole.
Now that I understood more about Ice Angels as an organization, I wanted to know more about Soto’s role as president. She explained that as the lead communicator between the university and her organization, she helps to run and mediate the projects Ice Angels are working on while maintaining and assisting her entire team of officers.
Soto made it clear how important it is to their organization that they focus on creating lifelong memories and friendships. In order to cultivate a bond between their members, their organization partakes in more than just attending hockey games. Ice Angels also hosts socials, monthly dinners, and an annual retreat and banquet. Soto stated that her personal favorite part of Ice Angels was the friendships she has created since joining, “Coming to college I didn’t understand how people found their best friends in college, but I now have because of Ice Angels!” This was so inspiring to hear and really shows just how passionate she feels about leading this organization and creating a great community within it.
One thing that impressed our Community Relations department here at KTSW and encouraged us to choose Ice Angels as our organization of the month was just how much Ice Angels has expanded since it was established in 2014. Although Ice Angels has grown to include over 30 young women here at Texas State, they continue to welcome new members each semester! Ice Angels holds recruitment in both the fall and spring semesters where they host several events. The week starts off with a round of informational meetings and socials, later on potential members will go through interviews with the executives in order to find out if they would be a good fit for Ice Angels.
If you love this student organization just as much as we do and are interested in joining, you can find more information on the Texas State University website or their twitter and instagram pages @txsticeangels.
