    At ECU, there is a sense of pride like no other. Being the Jewel of the East and representing the largest student organization on campus is the most special feeling. I have had the opportunity to meet and learn from so many of my peers in the ECUMP, and share the same passion of performing that they have. Becoming a part of the community here has brought me so much joy and support through all of my twirling endeavors. I encourage the next Feature Twirler to make the most of all opportunities offered at ECU and as a part of this amazing organization!
