Cray Cray Chlo Chlo. Dancing, smiling, and greeting new residents all
throughout the jam-packed week of move-in, Chloe definitely stood out.
During Summer B Welcome Week, she showed she was a hard-working officer
as she handled not only the events in the Springs area, but also offered
tremendous help at most of the other events as well. From selling
Activity Cards to residents for hours at a time and setting up at
events, to cleaning and putting together equipment, Chloe did it all.
And best of all, she did it with a smile and a positive attitude that
everyone wanted to be around.|
As President of the Springs Area Residential Council (SPARC), Chloe
started day one of Summer B Welcome Week with enthusiasm when she
volunteered to sell Activity Cards to the residents of Springs for the
entire day as they were moving in to the hall. Later that evening she
volunteered to help the IRHA Executive Board host a Casino Night in a
different residence hall, setting up snacks, arranging furniture, and
laying out games. She helped sell Activity Cards to Rawlings residents
too and stayed the entire time to help clean up.
The next day she again offered her help when she came to a Tye Dye event
at Beaty Towers. From set up to take down Chloe was bubbly and and so
welcoming to residents. I know she definitely brightened up everyone's
day. She even kept calm and cool when our wireless internet connection
cut off, which slowed us down while selling Activity Cards to dozens of
residents waiting in line. She never got visibly frustrated and was nice
to everyone while they patiently waited. She also helped out at our
Candy Sushi event the following afternoon to serve snacks to residents
and get everyone excited to start their college career at UF.
The Springs event hosting a local comedy act Theatre Strike Force was
extremely successful. The room was overflowing with residents wanting to
see the show and Chloe did a great job of organizing everything from
getting food to preparing the room. After that she came straight to the
Black Light Party in the Murphree area to help the IRHA Executive Board
host another successful event. She was so considerate to continuously
offer more than enough help that night and throughout the entire week.
She definitely lived up to her nickname of Cray Cray Chlo Chlo when she
got on the dance floor and made sure everyone was having a good time.
But the toughest work of all was left for last. Springs hosted a Field
Day and BBQ on undoubtedly the hottest day of the week. The 93 degree
weather couldn't stop Chloe though from rallying volunteers together to
get everything set up on time. Tents, cornhole, a volleyball net, and
food tables--Chloe organized it all. And when her Residence Director,
who intended on helping to grill the food, had to leave for an emergency
across campus, Chloe didn't worry. She found other Resident Assistants
to help out and get the burgers and hot dogs on the grill! Even after 3
hours in the unbearable heat she was still positive.
Chloe truly was such an enormous help throughout the entire week. She
went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly and kept
everyone in good spirits. Her positive attitude was so enjoyable to be
around and made the 5 days with 18 events seem like much less of a
daunting task. Chloe deserves to be recognized for her outstanding work
during Summer B Welcome Week and the rest of summer.
