CENTRAL LOUISIANA’S GOLDEN GIRL

by Madalyn Verzwyvelt

Ever since I was a little girl, I always dreamed of becoming an LSU Golden Girl. I grew up going to all of the home football games only to be mesmerized by those “glittering girls of gold.” My mom told me, when I was about 5-years-old, I told tugged on her arm and told her “Mom, I am going to be one of them one day.”

Being a Golden Girl is a tremendous honor and blessing. My first game as an LSU Golden Girl in AT&T Stadium was one of those feelings I will forever cherish; although, hitting the first four famous notes of pregame in Tiger Stadium sent chills down my spine. Becoming a Golden Girl took a lot of perseverance and determination and did not come easily. I attended as many dance conventions and clinics as I could to help prepare me for auditions. I started preparing for this dream of mine my freshman year of high school while being a part of my high school dance team.

No words can describe how thankful I am to be a part of the Golden Band from Tiger Land. Being a part of such a huge tradition at LSU empowers me to be humble and thankful for this once in a lifetime experience.
