Dedicated. Enthusiastic. Helpful. These are just three words that come to my head when I think about MAP’s wonderful Mappies.
I had some time to think about this as I walked back to my dorm after another successful event Saturday night. I kept wondering to myself, how could we have pulled this off without our Mappies? And the answer is- we couldn’t. Such large scale events, like Roller Rave, would be impossible without the help from our members. It all goes back to those three words that I think of when I think of Mappies.
Dedicated. The Mappies never cease to amaze me when it comes down to the amount of members that volunteer for events. I cannot remember an event where we did not have enough Mappies to help out. They give up their free time (even weekends) to help out this organization and this school. They do it willingly and without any compensation but free t-shirts, food, and love.
Enthusiastic. When Mappies come to an event to volunteer, they always have big smiles on their faces. They are excited, energized, and ready for the event that is about to take place. When students come through, they are positive and act with professionalism. Even when I know they must be tired (because I certainly am) they are still smiling.
Helpful. With all of our Mappies assisting, a big task seems so much smaller. They are willing to do any job they are given. When they see that someone needs help, they are there in a flash. They exhibit great teamwork and sometimes they help with last-minute problem solving.
For all of these reasons, Mappies are the best. We tell them all the time how amazing they are, but it just does not feel like enough when you think about it. So as always, we appreciate all of the dedicated, enthusiastic, and helpful work our Mappies do for MAP!
