KILGORE, TEXAS – Today, surrounded by hopes, dreams and years of tradition, 36 young women became the newest members of the world-famous Kilgore College Rangerettes dance and drill team.

The announcement, made in a closed ceremony in Dodson Auditorium on the Kilgore campus, culminates a week-long process of 89 hopefuls vying for a coveted position on the 78th Rangerette line. The new Rangerettes will join 36 sophomores to make a line of 72.

The Rangerettes were the first of their kind when they began in 1940 as a vision of Miss Gussie Nell Davis. The organization created a unique combination of dance moves and precision drills that quickly earned them the reputation not only as the originators of dance/drill teams, but as the best in the world. Known for their high kicks and the jump splits, the organization has entertained millions around the world and were the genesis of a multi-billion-dollar industry.
