The Office of Residential Education proudly presents the Resident Assistant of the Month Award for February to Sarah Hargrave '09.
Hargrave embodies the leadership skills and spirit that Resident Assistants at Hobart and William Smith Colleges strive to achieve. Her dedication to creating a positive living learning experience for her Potter Hall first years while addressing the needs of her sophomore residents has created a true sense of camaraderie among her students.
Hargrave is able to balance her academic work — including student teaching — with her Resident Assistant responsibilities, all while singing with Three Miles Lost.
A new staff member at the beginning of the year, she quickly learned the intricacies of the position and found the middle ground between being a peer and an authority figure.
Perhaps the highest compliment to her is that nine of her residents have applied for Resident Assistant positions for the 2007-08 year, and they all separately mentioned what a magnificent experience they had with her.
Hargrave understands the spirit of the Resident Assistant position and is an outstanding role model.
