This is especially true for those people lucky enough to call themselves RA’s. However, there is one member of our staff who seems to shine in moments of chaos and stress. This special person is Jill Malloy, RA for the 4th floor of the tower. Jill has been very active throughout the residence halls as well as on campus during April. Jill served applied and was chosen to be a house coordinator for the residence hall’s annual community service program, Paint the Palouse. This program is where residents volunteer and meet at 7:00 am to go paint houses of the elderly or less fortunate people of the community. As a house leader, Jill was responsible for organizing her volunteers, and making sure things ran smoothly. This also included attending many extra meetings above and beyond the already hectic schedule maintained by Jill. Jill has a class load of 16 credits, is a member of the Dean of Students Advisory Board, and works as an aid in the housing office. In the programming department, Jill worked with the humane society to arrange a time for the girls of her hall to go and walk the dogs so that they would receive a little extra fresh air and exercise. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate, and the dog walking program was postponed until May. Jill also helped create the “French Kisses” program where residents are rewarded for attending hall meetings, classes, and activities around campus. The residents then collect and turn in their kisses for prizes and an end of the year party. Jill also spent four hours cooking authentic Tortilla Espanolas for the cultural potluck which was held for all of the halls to attend. Not only is Jill active and involved around campus and in her hall, she is a caring and supportive RA. It is not uncommon to find four or five residents in Jill’s room at any time. Her residents truly do depend on her for advice and support. She is always there for them. Jill initiated a running joke on the hall to whistle at the girls when they walked by her room, or to call them sexy. It is not uncommon to hear the ladies of Jill’s hall come up to her whistle quietly, or scream “hey sexy” across the cafeteria. Jill also wrote each resident a letter telling them some of her favorite memories about them during the year, and wished them the best of luck for finals week and next year. This is just one other way that Jill goes above and beyond for her residents. Jill is also the emotional backbone of our tower staff. She always provides a positive outlook on every situation that occurs in the building and is supportive of her fellow staff. She is the first person to recognize when a co worker is having a bad day and will do just about anything to make it better. It is typical of Jill to be making tea for a fellow RA, or giving back massages during meetings. Finally, Jill was recognized at Golden Joes, the residence hall awards ceremony, for her outstanding service to the residence halls for the past two years with a two year service pin.
