Congratulations to Amie Jean for being inducted to the Texas Orange Jacket Society!
Orange Jackets is the oldest honorary service organization at the University of Texas. The core tenets of the organization are excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. Since its inception in 1923, OJs have been actively serving both UT and the greater Austin community. Members of Orange Jackets are easily recognized at campus events by their burnt orange vests emblazoned with a white “T” on the side pocket. Orange Jackets have been sporting this uniform ever since the UT v. OU game that took place on November 17, 1923. Every woman who becomes an Orange Jacket receives her vest at the end of her Tappee year.
Through our Developing Future Leaders Mentorship Program, Amie has demonstrated the characteristics of scholarship, leadership, and service. Amie thanks BLF Foundation for helping to grow these qualities through our mentorship sessions.
