Golden Girls 4 Life (GG4L)
The history of the Golden Girls is a great one. The Golden Girls Dance/Drill Team was established in 1969 by Mr. J.L. McCullough. The Golden Girls were named after Mr. McCullough’s Alma Mater, the LSU Tigers and Golden Girls Dance Team. Under the direction of Ms. Cynthia Gibson, 25 young ladies became the original Golden Girls that year. The team has continued their tradition of excellence through performance, competitions, community service, and the support of other CHS activities.
Over the years, numerous young ladies have been a part of the Golden Girls organization. Today, many second generation Golden Girls make up the team. The Golden Girls have also been under the direction of the following: Dotye Standford Barnes (1970-1976), Cynthia Head Thompson (1976-1980), Diane Watson Cain (1980-1984), Debbie Melton (1984-1985), Betty Buchner (1985-1991), Danielle Brasher Rapp (1991-1998), Fayla Chambers Curry (1998-2005), Amanda Bond (2005-2017), and Brittany Reilly (2017-Present).

TO BE A GOLDEN GIRL
Being a Golden Girl means being part of a family. For many girls, this is their first opportunity to share a common bond and a close relationship with others. Learning what it means to work very closely with other girls and sharing in accomplishments and frustrations are all part of the sisterhood of Golden Girls. To be chosen as a Golden Girl is an HONOR! Being a Golden Girl means being a member of a team; a team that works together, dances together, and is TOGETHER!
The Golden Girls organization is a proud group. Not only do they provide service to their school with the support of the faculty, administration, and other groups on campus, but they also provide a service to the community. Golden Girls are ready to help when needed. The Golden Girls organization provides a real opportunity for a young lady to exert initiative, leadership, and creativity. Performing before an audience helps each young lady develop self-assurance and poise. The opportunities to grow, learn, and lead that are received through the Golden Girls organization can ease the transition from adolescence into adulthood.
Pride and dedication to the Conroe High School Golden Girls is required of all girls who make the team. Participation in this organization is the highlight of the high school years for many girls. There will be many good times, some glory and recognition, but a member must make sacrifices. It is important that each team member understands that membership is a privilege, and not a right.
The Foundation of Excellence-
Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Therefore, give yourself fully to your endeavors.
Decide to construct your character through excellent actions and determine to pay the price of a worthy goal.
The trials you encounter will introduce you to your strengths.
Remain steadfast…and one day you will build something that endures; something worthy of you potential.
