Supporting Rochelle Duffy!
Rochelle Duffy is one of the hardest working people to exist. As a housing coordinator at Simon's Rock, Rochelle has dedicated over a decade of work to make sure that students at Simon's Rock feel like more than just an academic structure. She's worked to make it a home. Whether it be through her work in innovating the ACE programs or by comforting a student in need, Rochelle has made consistently been a pillar of support for the community. For many students, Rochelle is the pinnacle of the values Simon's Rockers hope to live up to in providing love, support, and family to one another.
Tonight, in the middle of a global pandemic, economic downturn, and job market freeze, she was rewarded for her work by being fired. When she asked what the reason for her job termination was, she was told that she had committed "repeated violations". When she asked what these violations were, the administration refused to answer. She was given 2 hours to pack all of her belongings and move off-campus.
Rochelle has supported all of us. It's time we do the same for her. Please sign your name with any memory you have of Rochelle as an integral part of your SR experience.
