GEORGETOWN, Ky. – GC alumni Kara Shepherd ’13, Megan O’Donnell ’08 and Benjie Aspillaga ’13 recently worked the Lexington Challenger professional tennis tournament at University of Kentucky’s Hilary J. Boone Center, a week-long event now sponsored by Kentucky Bank.

Megan, the chief assistant to the tourney director, was on board for the fourth time; the other pair three years each.

Kara, a Paris native who majored in Communication & Media Studies, recently started the online boutique Karabootique that was featured in the Lexington Herald-Leader. She and Megan are both Kappa Deltas.

Shelbyville’s Megan, who majored in Business Administration, just finished a second degree in Accounting from Sullivan University; she’ll soon move to Lexington as she begins work for the accounting firm of Ray, Foley, Hensley & Company, PLLC.

Benjie, who majored in Finance, will start the MBA program at Eastern Kentucky University this fall and be a volunteer coach with the Colonels’ men’s tennis team. He was nationally ranked in NAIA singles and doubles while playing No. 1 for Georgetown and was a member of the Tigers soccer team.

More than 60 students and alumni have worked what used to be the Fifth Third Bank Tennis Championships over the past 13 years, gaining invaluable networking experience.
