Recently, Brooke Ravenscraft has been the recipient of many awards and has made several accomplishments. She is the homecoming queen, Elizabeth Bird Small Award recipient and her organization was recognized nationally for upholding the ideals of their sorority. She puts in so much hard work and love into everything that she is a part of.

Brooke Ravenscraft is a senior, Elementary Education major with a minor in Early Childhood Education from Kansas City, Missouri. Here at Northwest, she is involved in Alpha Sigma Alpha, Gamma Alpha Lambda, Order of Omega and Cardinal Key National Honor Society. She also works on campus as a student ambassador, a university seminar peer advisor and a Lead Green leadership mentor. 

This year she was nominated for the Northwest Missouri State Homecoming Queen and she won! Ravenscraft was sponsored by Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity and was able to ride in a classic car during the homecoming parade to show off her crown. Her accomplishments don't stop there!

Alpha Sigma Alpha was one of thirteen chapters awarded the four-star award this summer at their national convention. This award is given to collegiate chapters that uphold the high ideals of the sorority in the areas of membership, academic excellence, finances, membership education, chapter operations, service and giving, ritual, organization image, policies and procedures, advisory board and alumni involvement. 

Brooke was awarded the Elizabeth Small Bird Award. This award is seen as the highest honor that the national organization of Alpha Sigma Alpha can present to an undergraduate member. The Elizabeth Small Bird Award recognizes outstanding academics, leadership talents within the chapter and significant commitments and accomplishments within campus and their community.

Ms. Ravenscraft was asked what her inspiration is and she said "my future career as a teacher is definitely one of the biggest inspirations in my life. Seeing the world through a child's eyes is one of the best ways to put life into perspective." She was also asked what her motivation is and said "I've been fortunate to have many role models in my life who demonstrated how to be a strong leader, a caring friend, an influential educator and a devoted believer. I know I wouldn't be where I am today without their guidance. Remembering this motivates me to invest myself in the work that I am doing and be that role model for other leaders, peers, educators and believers." Lastly to help other college students, she says that "you'll never regret getting involved and devoting yourself to an organization to make it better. Invest yourself in something you believe in." We are proud to have Brooke as a fellow Bearcat.
