KILGORE, Texas, June 30, 2022 – Today, sitting among hopes, dreams, and over 80 years of tradition, 36 young women became the newest members of the world-famous Kilgore College Rangerettes.

The announcement, made in a closed ceremony in Dodson Auditorium on the Kilgore campus, culminated a week-long process of 69 hopefuls vying for a coveted position on the 83rd Rangerette line. The new Rangerettes will join 32 sophomores to make a line of 68.

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 team, but as the best in the world.
