Westchester - August
Victoria Valdes, Residential Life, Westchester
Recognized by Alyssa Caffarelli, Residential Life, Westchester
Victoria is a new Residence Director at Pace who has not had any prior residential life experience, but you would never know it! Especially noteworthy is that she does not use this as a reason to not take initiative (even though it would be totally understandable if she needed to wait to do so!). Specifically this week, Victoria has led the other Residence Directors in a creative effort to make thoughtful welcome packages for our Resident Assistants on a budget (as our department received budget cuts this year), utilizing items we already have and being thoughtful about low-cost things we can buy. Victoria put a lot of work into these ideas and created a Google Document where we could all collaborate on this together. This act of going above and beyond for the team was especially appreciated as we all prepare for RA training next week which is one of our busiest times of year!
