Grace SmithAlumnae Chair
Grace joined the Callbaxx Spring 2016 and comes to us from a town right outside of 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 won't 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!
