Who's Who Education majors teach "I've been active in everything ACU has to offer," said Roxy Halekakis, senior business education major from Eagle Pass. Roxy was in everything from "A" - Alpha Chi - to "Wi, - W Club. Her in- terests in between ranged from band to politics. She played in the Big Purple and marched as a twirler. Roxy also was active in the College Republicans, Student Foun- dation, GATA and Campus Service Organization. She was a Homecoming Queen nominee and Sing Song co- chairman. Her grades earned her recogni- tion on the Dean's Honor Roll. Roxy student-taught typing and business practices at Abilene High School, which she said she found rewarding because, "I earned the kids' respect." After completing her degree, she planned to earn a master's degree, then to teach or work as a business executive. When she leaves ACU, Roxy said she would miss the "Christian atmosphere that I don't think I'll find anywhere else." "I'd like to be thought of as more than a specialist," said Cary Gray, senior math and physics major from Abilene. "I try not to hide out in the science building too much." Although Cary majored in a specialized field, he also was involved in Big Purple, orchestra and jazz ensemble and helped teach a leadership training class for boys at University Church of Christ. He was president of Alpha Chi, a member of Kinsmen and Sigma Pi Sigma physics honor society. Cary also was cap- tain of the award-winning computer pro- gramming team. Cary applied for graduate school at Stanford, Michigan State and other schools. When he finished graduate school, he planned to teach computer science at the college level.

She planned to teach high school English in the Dallas area.
