This week is Faculty and Staff Appreciation Week at MNU, so I thought I’d take a few moments to give some shout-outs to a few faculty/staff members that have made a personal impact on my freshman year so far.
1. Laura Hahn
Laura is amazing for too many reasons to list. To name a few, she’s selfless, encouraging, genuine, and really stinkin’ cares about the residents on campus. She goes out of her way to serve others on a daily basis, which is something I look up to a lot. She is also hilarious and easy going… it’s good to talk to her for some de-stress time. Thanks for being you! And having an awesome dog.
2. Pete Brumbaugh
I’ve mentioned him on my blog before, so you all probably already know that he was an amazing boss for the fall Phonathon. I haven’t worked for him in months, but he still makes an effort to keep up with my life. I love chatting with him in Campus Center and I am confident that he truly cares about all students on a deep level. Thanks for being a friendly boss, even when you’re not technically my boss.
3. Professor St. John
I am almost positive that Professor St. John makes everyone’s list. He deserves to be appreciated for so many reasons. He cares about students on a crazy awesome level. His interactions with all students are so meaningful and encouraging. He has a pretty rad Instagram account, too. Thanks for taking time to eat lunch with students and sharing your wisdom with this campus.
4. Kelly Chesley
Kelly is an awesome and encouraging student blogging boss. It’s so fun to see her when we have meetings, or when I randomly show up in Dobson to chat for a bit. I know that she truly cares about all of the bloggers. She gives great advice and encourages us to be the best we can be. Thanks for giving me opportunities to use my talents/hobbies on campus and encouraging me in many ways.
5. Kim Campbell
Kim rocks. I know that whenever I see her on campus, I will be greeted with a sincere smile and have a great conversation about whatever is on our minds that day. I know that I can trust her to have my best interest in mind when it comes to anything in my life. She’s super positive, encouraging, and genuine. Thanks for being a light in my life!
6. Amy Curtis
Amy is so nice and smart… those are the first two words that come to my mind when I think of her. I don’t get to chat with her as often as I’d like, but I know she’s always there if I have a question about blogging (HTML is difficult… I couldn’t survive it without her). Thanks for always smiling and being helpful!
Those are just a few of the many faculty/staff members that have made an impact. I appreciate every single one of them. They each make this campus a beautiful place in unique ways.
Students… make sure to tell your “favorites” that you appreciate them!
