I am just going to tell you right now - that Rauncie’s story is life changing not only for her, but for anyone who reads it.
I am not even going to spill any of the details as you need to read it as she wrote it in her own words.
All I can say is WOW and a heartfelt congratulations to Rauncie on choosing to make the changes in her life that she always wanted and the courage to follow through.
Thank you Rauncie - for sharing your story with the RIT community.

Okay, I have to be honest - I don’t know! Sorry to get your hopes up, but we are all going to have to wait until the Fifteenth Annual Staff Recognition Awards Ceremony on October 5th to find out. In the meantime, our Staff Recognition Awards Display has been repopulated with a bunch of nameless silhouettes as a teaser to help build anticipation leading up to the big day.
