Majoring in Secondary Education/History, she plans to teach her minor fields of study, Psychology and Sociology. During her 2012 summer break from OSU she will return home to The Woodlands in the greater Houston area, where she will take Composition II at the local community college. A member of the OSU Pom Squad since her freshman year, Ansley Alyce Jones hopes to coach cheerleading or dance when she secures a high school teaching position after graduation.
In her first year at OSU, Ansley Jones chose to join the Pi Beta Phi Sorority, a women’s fraternity committed to forming lasting bonds of friendship and to performing social service. Providing scholarships and grants, Pi Phi encourages leadership development in its members through numerous programs, including its Leadership Development Program and leadership academies. The sorority has promoted literacy for 100 years.
During rush in her first year, Ms. Jones evaluated her experiences with members of the reputable Pi Beta Phi. She sensed camaraderie in the young women welcoming her, easily imaging them lifelong friends – a Pi Phi core value and mission. Feeling at home in a new community far away from her family and friends, Ansley Alyce Jones eagerly anticipated becoming part of the sorority. Honored to pledge, she appreciated the members’ emphasis on religious matters, an important part of her life.
When she is home, Ms. Jones attends The Woodlands United Methodist Church and volunteers at Interfaith of The Woodlands, a nonprofit social services agency. A participant in Toys for Tots and Toys for Teens, Ansley Jones volunteers at the Montgomery County YMCA and Library.
