Kilgore Dedicates Davis Rangerette Dorm

A woman who founded a famous dance troupe was honored at an East Texas college.   The Gussie Nell Davis Rangerette Residence was dedicated during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Kilgore College.

Hundreds of alumni attended the event.  Davis formed the Rangerettes in 1940. Many at the dedication feel she would have been impressed by how well know the Rangerettes have become, and humbled at being honored by them.

The building dedicated today is the dorm for the Rangerette team. Gussie Nell Davis died in 1994. She would have been 100 years old this year.
