At the award ceremony, it was noted that the first impressions people gain of FCS are positive due to her helpfulness and thoughtfulness.

“I was walking around trying to find my classes and she came out into the hall and asked if she could assist me. She helped me find the classrooms and her friendly manner helped ease my anxiety,” a student nominator wrote. Another student added, “Her kindness is a daily routine and she makes Bloch Hall a welcoming place.”
