Please explain the outstanding contributions of the nominee during the month of nomination

As the RHD of Noren Hall, Chris Graf tends to be a very busy guy during the school year. As I assumed the role of president of Noren Hall this semester, I was unsure of how much support and assistance I would receive from Chris in my role as president. As it turns out, Chris has been a great resource for me. In a mere month I have received a great deal of support and motivation from Chris. He is always helpful in answering any of my questions or helping through problems. For example, I was struggling with building an authoritative presence in our Hall Gov meetings at first. With advice from Chris, I was able to carefully assert myself as the president. Chris has also helped me with numerous other things related to hall government this month. I have found him to be highly attached to helping everyone in the hall do what is best for the hall. Chris motivates me to think about possible outcomes of decisions and where I am leading discussions during hall gov. Chris also motivates residents to have a positive presence on our campus. In the month of January, Chris has gone from a simple acquaintance of mine, to a mentor providing me with skills, ideas, and confidence that I will be able to use for the rest of my life.
