The McGraw-Page Library cannot run without the help of our many student workers. Unfortunately for us, each year we lose many to graduation. We would like to shine a spotlight on them and their wonderful help.
Hometown: Henrico, VA
Majors: English & Asian Studies
After R-MC Plans: The next step for me is pursuing a graduate degree, but eventually I would love to work in an academic or observatory library, and/or become an English professor.
Favorite Memory: My favorite library memory is probably getting to learn so much more about R-MC's history and the people that have made an impact here. Both before and during the pandemic, getting to look through files and read or hear about students who used to attend R-MC and faculty/staff that worked here has taught me so much about the school and how some things have changed, but some things have remained the same over decades. While not a single memory, the culmination of all these occurrences has left a lasting impression on me that won't fade any time soon.

Favorite Library Memory: probably when I had to change the ink in the printer but did not know how. I asked Lynda [a librarian] for help but she also did not know what to do and I ended up emptying an entire ink cartridge on myself. That day I learned that the ink comes out in powder, not liquid form.
