Elisa Acosta

Major/Minors: Graduated in 2015 with a B.S. Aerospace Engineering and a minor in Mathematics

Occupation: Composites Engineer for Materials & Processes Engineering at Spirit Aerosystems

Favorite rowing accomplishment: I made 3rd Team All-American and the Plains All-Regional Team my 2nd year on the team.

Why are you helping/volunteering with the team: I joined rowing very late in my college career, so I only got to row collegiately for 2 years, but followed the team around the year before I joined. I learned to love the sport, the mechanics of helping out on race day,  and how to work for something bigger than myself. I wanted to continue
helping so that I could help others feel the love for the sport that I got to experience in just three short years. I volunteer so that the ladies and gentlemen that join can know that you don't need previous experience in the sport or even athletics to do well in it (just patience and LOTS of practice & hardwork).
