We have reached the mid-point of Final Exam Week. I am impressed by the kindness and love that has been shown during a time that can be stressful. I think it speaks of the commitment and dedication that the residents of Ryan Hall live out every day. It is time to thank many people who have contributed to the Ryan Hall Community. Let us begin with the Hall Staff.
Meredith Holland has served as AR for two years and will graduate with her J.D.
Sara Thoms has served as RA for two years and will graduate with a M.Div.
Brennah Toomey has served as RA in 1A.
Vanessa Acosta has served as RA in 1B.
Megan McAdoo has served as RA in 2A.
Isabel Meunch has served as RA in 2B.
Claire Kramer has served as RA in 3A.
Madeline Donohue has served as RA in 3B.
These women have sacrificed study time, social life and given themselves to so many of you. They are great role models and each of them has a servant heart. Each of them and as a group has impressed me. I think we can all agree that they are friendly, welcoming and helpful.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Allyse Gruslin who has been our fearless leader and has loved all of us. She has made many personal sacrifices for us as she lead us with a servant heart. She will marry the love of her life, Chris, and together they will reflect God’s love to all they meet during their journey through life. Let us pray in thanksgiving for Allyse and Chris as they will soon become husband and wife.
Our Hall Government has made life in Ryan wonderful. There were many events and the leadership of Caitlin, Jenny and Snarpy, Terese and Julia along with various commissioners made them a lot of fun and helped people get to know each other.
I think everyone should appreciate all that our many bakers did throughout the year. I know that every baker, whether you were there every Tuesday or a few times, gave their talents because of love for all of you. There were the leaders like CoCo, Mary Carroll and Jenny Moore and the many Sophomores and the rookie of the year baker, Kate Mulshine . You all made Tuesday’s special.
I am praying for all of you and hope you have a safe and renewing summer and future. May you know you are loved.
