Rebecca Foster Gillespie is the representative from the Omicron Psi Chapter serving as the District II Vice-President for the Texas Region
A nontraditional student, she found her path to higher education after starting a family which now includes three beautiful children and a caring husband. It was only through their support and urging that she began attending Grayson College in pursuit of her nursing degree.
As she looks back on these past years, she cannot deny that she has grown so personally and professionally. She says she has not always had confidence in her abilities, but her experiences through Phi Theta Kappa have taught her that she is a leader and that she can reach any goal she sets for myself. As a a chapter member, a chapter officer, and chapter president, she began a new adventure representing her chapter in regional office. It (what has been?) has been a life-changing experience for her, just as it has been for so many in Phi Theta Kappa. Once she completes her Associates Degree in Nursing, she plans to pursue her dream of becoming a Nurse Anesthetist by acquiring a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees at UT-Tyler.
Personally, she is a bit of a science nerd, and loves meeting new people. So please do not hesitate to start a conversation with her if we you don’t already know her. She sincerely wants each and every one to have a meaningful experience with Phi Theta Kappa, and she and her chapter are excited to represent District II.
