  • Grace Winant

    Treasurer

    Grace is joining us from Westchester, New York, where she is a Christmas music fanatic and thrives from her infamous baking business, The Sugar Bowl (ig:the_sugar_bowl). Her love of Kristen Wiig and chobani without fruit on the bottom made her an excellent candidate when transferring into the AEM major as a sophomore. Grace joined the Callbaxx in the spring of 2016 and has since been mystifying us with her beautiful alto tone. Come hear her sing... there may even be cookies!
  • Carly Steckel

    Secretary, PR Lead

    Carly hails from Westport, Connecticut and is a Junior majoring in Psychology and minoring in Business. She has been a member of the Callbaxx since Fall 2014. When not singing, Carly is either rapping (better than any chick you've ever heard--yes, including Nicki Minaj), casually doing freelance work as a makeup artist (what?!), or working on one of her many henna tattoo masterpieces... like honestly can this girl get any cooler???

  • Grace Smith

    (abroad)

    Grace joined the Callbaxx Spring 2016 and comes to us from a town right outside Albany. When Grace isn’t with the Callbaxx she can be found high jumping for the Cornell Track and Field team (she is a 2 time New York State Champion, whhhhaaatttt) or yodeling. You also might know her from when she held the door for you for an awkwardly long time, but it’s her pet peeve when people don’t hold doors so she wont let that go (literally). Grace not only increases the average height of the Callbaxx by quite a bit, but also adds humor and energy to the group!
