My Torchbearers: East Hall Leadership Team, 2009-2010

Posted by - - 2000s, Submitted

Between 2009 and 2011, I had the privilege of serving as Resident Director for the first years of East Residence Hall. I’m particularly struck by the 2009-2010 leadership team – student leaders who were tasked with building a community of Whitworthians from the ground up. These students, who have lived in other Whitworth residence halls in previous years, were brilliant in combining the ways they sought to form a brand new community’s identity. These Whitworthians are true Torchbearers, leading the way for their peers to experience a new Whitworth community in a way that felt like it had been around forever.
