☆THIS WEEK IN LONESTARS☆
Happy Labor Day y'all!
No meeting this week because Tuesday is informal interviews! Good luck to LeaLea, Julia and all of NMC and DEI this week, I know it's a lot of work but I can't wait to meet our new Starlette class :)
I really need y'all to fill out this Hornslink form for me!
Our roster is completely outdated lol. If y'all have issues with your invitations to join, just find our organization page on Hornslink and there should be a button that allows you to ask to join the org. If you have any issues just let me know!
Name tags have FINALLY been delivered!! I will be bringing them to our next meeting with me on the 21st so please grab them from from me then <3
(if you can't come to meeting just text me so we can work something out)
Please carve out some time this week to take care of yourself! I know adjusting to school (and being back in person nonetheless) can always be trying for our mental health, so it's extra important that we prioritize our health above all else right now. I want to plug some of the support groups they have through CMHC that you might find useful and as always, please reach out to me if you need absolutely anything at all <3

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION - Maryam and Anna
Hi y’all! Hope you’ve all had a great weekend! DEI is working closely with recruitment and we’re all excited to welcome a new starlette class very soon. Look out for a poll in the GroupMe to set a date and time for Town Hall. We decided to postpone it a week so that y’all could get settled in with school and Lonestars! We are also aware that there have been certain events concerning the conduct of members in other spirit groups that have come to light. Rest assured that we’re working out how Lonestars respects and acts upon the information. As usual, reach out with any issues, comments and concerns!
