B.A. Rudolph, our namesake, was an inspiration and driving force for women in many ways, even outside of her professional accomplishments. She taught her young goddaughters to headbutt instead of give kisses. She would don a tiara and sport a feather boa on a weeknight when seeking inspiration or a belly laugh. She was compassionate, bossy, irreverent, generous, and loyal. She loved margaritas almost as much as she loved stirring up “the good kind” of trouble. Most of all, she inspired those around her to be the best possible “BA”dass versions of themselves.
