Tanya Koroyan Bid for President Makoto Ushihara Chapter National Residence Hall Honorary San Jose State


Tanya for President of the makoto ushihara chapter of nrhh
Experience & qualifications:
My name is Tanya Koroyan and next year I will be a senior at San Jose State University, graduating with a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology. I have been a proud member of the National Residence Hall Honorary Makoto Ushihara Chapter of SJSU since November or 2010. I consistently fulfill my responsibilities and duties as a member. This includes writing OTMs every month, voting, attending all chapter meetings, and helping with programs sponsored by NRHH. In spring of 2011 I served as the Vice President of membership, and was the lead on the traditional NRHH program of Xpression: A Diversity Showcase. Currently, I serve as the Vice President of Recognition, some of my responsibilities of this role include managing OTMs and putting on monthly OTM Writing Nights. Because of these experiences I am very familiar with the responsibilities that come with the executive position of President.

As president I plan to continue the following
     

Spotlight a member each meeting Take attendance Collateral assignments Hold meetings in the RAC Formal elections Special guests (ADNRHH and NAN via Skype)

Encourage NRHH members to become involved in the recognition of others through OTMs, programs, and by being a positive role model to the campus community. Through it all remembering the four pillars of NRHH: scholastics, service, recognition, and leadership.

Diamond Points
This will serve as an incentive to participate in various ways, and hold members accountable. Members would gain Diamond Points by doing the following:  Attending Chapter meetings

    

Hosting programs Attending NRHH sponsored programs Fulfilling their collateral assignment Writing OTMs Writing Campus/Regional/National winning OTMs

The Executive board would maintain the Diamond Points and keep track of each member’s progress throughout the year. Obtaining a certain amount of points would allow the member to be eligible for NRHH sweaters, graduation robes, etc.

Collateral assignment
I would like to keep the options for collateral assignments. Members will rank their top 5 choices then be assigned their collateral. Some current ones we have include: RA Appreciation, Hall Government Appreciation, Culture of Clean, Alumni Recognition, etc. In addition to those options I would like to give the members the opportunity to create their own collateral assignment. This could be proposed at a Chapter meeting

National Residence Hall Honorary – Makoto Ushihara Chapter One Washington Square San Jose, CA 95192 To Whom It May Concern: It is my pleasure to write this letter in support of Tanya Koroyan, who is running for President of the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH), Makoto Ushihara Chapter at San Jose State University. I have known Ms. Koroyan for three years and have worked closely with her this past year in her role as Senior Resident Advisor of Campus Village Building A. Ms. Koroyan has been involved not only in her role as resident advisor, but also around campus and is well-known in Associated Students as a leader both in and out of University Housing Services. Ms. Koroyan is currently the Vice President of Recognition. In this position, Ms. Koroyan has put on successful “Of the Month” (OTM) writing workshops and is more than willing to assist others in writing OTMs. She also writes numerous OTMs monthly to recognize leaders at San Jose State. Because of her previous experience and her desire to be involved, I believe Tanya would be an excellent choice for president of NRHH. Tanya’s enthusiasm, her dedication, her drive, her organization, and her passion for student involvement and recognition make her the perfect candidate for the position. I fully support Tanya Koroyan for the presidential role in the Makoto Ushihara Chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary. Sincerely, Ana Acosta
