My name is Heather McGowan!!I graduated in December 2013 with a Bachelors Degree in Music Education and I recently accepted a job as the Assistant Band Director at Sul Ross Middle School in Northside ISD in San Antonio! Whew! I crossed into the bonds of Iota sisterhood in SP 2010 with Serendipity.

I completed all my official duties in Iota at the end of Spring 2013, and instead of stepping back from Tau Beta Sigma, I ran for district council and was elected into the Presidential position! My last year as a super active member was that… super active!! I helped plan all the district events including Area Workshops and District Convention 2013 (which was held by Iota & Beta Alpha #sicem)!
My time in Iota has been a whirlwind of fun and friendships, but I never thought that some of the lifelong friendships would be created my very last semester on Baylor’s campus! In fact, just a week and a half ago, Elysekies (who’s originally from California), was in Texas for a brief amount of time before heading off to study abroad in London (super jealous)! She took time out of her busy schedule to drive to San Antonio and visit me! It was super-hot that day, so we didn’t take a lot of pictures, but she was really there!!
Literally the next day after seeing Elyse, I left for upstate New York to visit with Kristyn!! It’s really bizarre that my twittles literally live on opposite sides of the United States, but I guess that’s a factor that makes our lives interesting!
Anyway, Kristyn contacted me back in May if I would be willing to fly up to New York to help her drive home… Her dad normally flies down and helps her drive home, or will drive her back to Waco and then fly home, but this summer he wasn’t exactly looking forward to it. He told her to ask a friend to fly up and part of the incentive was that we would get to do a lot of really awesome things before the 24-27 hour drive back to Texas!
So enough words! I think pictures are worth a thousand words!
After a 3 hour flight delay in Baltimore, I finally made it to Rochester, NY at 3:00 in the morning… Kristyn was waiting for me, so we hugged, loaded up, and headed to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada!
