Waiting for all my friends at quarter schools to come home like
❗️Employe highlight❗️Meet Bennett, he’s had a full beard since he was 4 and answers best to “bud.” His hobbies include cooking a mean stir fry, bandanas, friendship bracelets and liberating zoo animals. This swashbuckling rock pirate will steal your proj. and your heart!
#Spotlight As we begin the Holiday break we have been working with out Green Team Leaders: Darquan (a senior at Huguenot HS) and Ii’Jeana (a junior at Open HS). They have worked their way to being leaders by showing incredible aptitude for leadership, initiative, and a love of learning about all things conservation! You’ll be seeing way more of them for the rest of the year for sure (you already have lol).
Sometimes we play dress up and have magical weekends ✨
Today’s #MACUHOMonday Spotlight is: Derek Smith, our current #MACUHO Treasurer, and Director of Student Affairs Operations at @delawarevalleyuniversity ! Derek has been involved with MACUHO since 2006 when he attended his first annual conference, and he hasn't missed one since! He has held multiple positions within MACUHO, and won the James Hurd Outstanding Service Award in 2011.
What Derek loves most about MACUHO is the incredible relationships he has made through the organization. "I have an ample supply of wonderful people that I can turn to at any time for support, advice, commiseration, and just having fun. These people are by far the best resource that I have gained through my involvement." Derek's advice to new or incoming members is to find connections! "I would not have the relationships that I mentioned had I not put myself out there and gotten involved. Do something, anything, and you can find connections. Join a committee, volunteer at a conference, present a session, introduce yourself, etc. – if you reach out, MACUHO reaches back." Derek's favorite quote is: “One of the symptoms of approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important.” Bertrand Russell, The Conquest of Happiness, 1930. His take on the quote is: Don’t forfeit the passion that drives your work by taking yourself too seriously, have some fun!
You can find Derek right here on Facebook, and the Social Media Coordinator may have to get him to join some more social media platforms. 🤣
Thank you Derek, for all your hard work and dedication to MACUHO during your 12 year commitment to the organization, and to the field of Residence Life and Student Affairs. #SpotLight#StudentAffairs#ResidenceLife#ResLife#SApro#DelawareValleyUniversity
