At the end of the night, a dance competition was held and awards were given out for the most improved male and female dancers, as well as the most advanced.“It would be cool to join Herdsmen Hearts and I thought [tonight] was fun,” freshman Equine Industry and Business major Christina Chollett said.
According to Herdsmen Hearts President Faith Hoelscher, the event offers students a fun night and gives the organization the chance to get their name out there.
“Basically it’s an opportunity to give a lot of the students on campus a safe place to come,” Hoelscher said.
This is the second year that Herdsmen Hearts has put on the event. Spring 2011 was the first time that the dance was held.
“[The two stepping dance] was our new thing in the spring, but I’m sure we’ll have a lot more [events] coming up soon when things get going,” Herdsmen Hearts Vice President Kelsey Foreman said.
According to Foreman, the Herdsmen Hearts group was formed in the Fall 2010 semester. It’s still a fairly new organization, but they are working on increasing their membership, broadening student involvement and adding more volunteer work to their agenda.
