Tarleton has a new Texan Rider!

Tarleton State University has a new Texan Rider this semester: Laramie Cayenne Gambrell. Gambrell is a 19-year-old theatre major from Tuscola, Texas. 

JTAC sat down with our new Texan Rider on September 15th to discuss her aspirations and what it means to be a part of one of Tarleton's oldest traditions. 

JTAC News: What made you want to try out as the Texan Rider? 

LCG: I fell in love with this school from the moment I toured campus. I was the mascot at my previous school for three years and loved every moment of it. It has always been a goal of mine to be a mascot at the collegiate level and now I'm living the dream. 

I take pride in this school and truly bleed purple. People ask me all the time how I'm able to "make time" for events. What they don't understand is that I don't have to "make time". You make time for jobs. This isn't a job, it's an opportunity. The fact that I am able to show up to every event and share the spirit of Tarleton with the students and community is such a blessing. I love it! 

JTAC News: What is your favorite Tarleton tradition?

LCG: I really like the bonfire because it really brings the community and school together as one. The school president, Purple Poo, band, students, TSU alumni and really just everyone that is a part of the greatest kept secret in Texas.

My favorite tradition at Tarleton is all of homecoming week, I love it because of the memories that are made. Every year the memories are always different even though homecoming is all traditions.
