One of the parts of this role that I love the most is getting to work daily with our exceptional volunteers, truly you all humble me with everything tht you do. Once a year the Officers get the honor and privilege of recognizing some of the folks most pivotal in making things happen and this year it is my further honor to get to make the post!




Staff Members of the Year!

Who remembers the adorable Tree stuck in jail lamenting her lost crowns? I may be bias on this one, but I loved watching this recipient evolve that project from concept to final product. Since joining out Graphics Development Team in 2023 she has continually turned-out high-quality work in rapid succession meeting both our community’s needs and exceeding our expectations. Additionally, she keeps stepping up and volunteering with dedication and fervor and is quickly. All my crown thieving personal bias aside I am excited to award @Elleria Sevrinde with this 2024 Staff Member of the Year Award.
:clap2::clap2::clap2:


Volunteering for the Safety Committee at any of our live events entails a commitment wherein volunteers are asked to give of their time- during a party! During our most recent Anniversary Party, 2023 in New Braunfels, Texas one of our volunteers went above and beyond giving consistent care and time away from the action to keep another one of our members alive. She began her service at lunch prior to Anni kicking off and continued through the entire event, using up an entire drugstores’ worth of gauze and countless hours taking care of what I shuddered to look at- Nurses for the WIN. It is with a deep sense of gratitude that I get to award @Anika Forsyn with this 2024 Staff Member of the Year Award for her gracious dedication with the true spirit of a Yellow.

Administrators of the Year


This recipient is serving her second consecutive term in the Department of Membership guiding our Novices and Recruits into the Tower and aiding them as their journey begins. In addition, she has been a strong and passionate advocate for our Tower Initiates and a central catalyst of change in our ongoing efforts to revise our Mentorship Program. She has been dedicated, thoughtful, and a genuine pleasure to work with so it is my absolute pleasure to present @Lithiel Morn with this Administrator of the Year Award.
:clap2::clap2::clap2:


This recipient has a long history of dedicated service to our community and has been a critical asset to numerous departments. With her role as Tower Historian in the Department of Research and Record she has not only ensured our library maintains the highest standards, but she has updated every raising, bonding, and staff change without error or delay- think lightning fast! As a Tower Gatekeeper she has again been on top of changes and kept us all, including myself, organized with smooth transitions and more lightning fast service. Further still she recently wrapped up a successful term as Head of the Brown Ajah. For her dedicated service and because she continually steps up to get (all) the jobs done I am honored to announce this Administrator of the Year Award to @Tallan Daar.

Initiative of the Year

This year our Initiative of the Year Award is very special as it recognizes an organic and member driven initiative that has set a new standard for our community. The two recipients of this award have given us as an organization a new path in how we can put our best selves forward as Servants of All while also honoring our membership in an unprecedented and meaningful way.

Something we have done for many years at our RL events is focus on a local charity or general good cause. It’s something nice that we can do for the locals after we show up (and ravage the place) and something we have seen many evolutions of over the years. Now, we are aging as an organization and the sad reality is setting in that we are beginning to see more of our members leave us under the most tragic circumstances. We recognize with extremely heavy hearts that this trend will continue and increase as time goes by. Last year we saw several difficult losses and from one of them stemmed a member driven initiative that grew to by our charitable focus for Anni 2023, and has established a new tradition.

This year myself and all the Officers are humbled and honored to present @Dovienya el'Korim and @Alexr al'Petros with the Initiative of the Year Award for their development, creation, and execution of the Rand Run at Anni 2023 supporting the Boy Scouts of America in honor of one of our most beloved and fallen members, Randalren. His loss met us all with shock and great sorrow but from that loss a new tradition of honoring our fallen members through charitable activities aimed toward their most treasured causes and organizations has been born. This was a member driven event that is now an institutionalized practice we are sorrowfully looking forward at continuing.

Thank you Dovi and Alexr for honoring Rand in a beautiful way and giving us all a path forward in working through our collective grief. The road taken to put this event together was not an easy one but your dedication to making it happen serves as an inspiration to us all.
:clap2::clap2::clap2:




Finally, because writing this made me sad all over again, Rand, may you shelter in the palm of the Creator's hand, and may the last embrace of the mother welcome you home.
