Deollcateol to youth
Stauffer first student body president does when
he sends 'flowers to Dean Royer at the beginning
of each school year
Retiring after 13 years with Valliey Col-
lege, Mrs. Nena Royer, dean of student activ-
ities, will end 45 years in the service of
The first dean selected for the Valley
College administrative staff, she chose to
work as close to the students as possible.
A popular adviser in every student activ-
ity, Dean Royer often finds her calendar
crowded from early until late, but with re-
markable ease, appointments come and go as
smoothly as guests drifting in and out of an
With no hint of pressure, without clock
watching, Mrs. Royer receives students in her
office as graciously as guests in her home
and, like a doting parent, displays an entire
wall of her office lined with photographs of
student body presidents, each picture cap-
tioned with the student's name, class year
and the Royer touch: the student's nickname.
"Students are my life," she often has said,
laughingly telling how frequently they refer
to her as "Mother"
'tIt's a privilege and a responsibility to
work with young people, and every student
is entitled to be treated as a teacher would
want his own child treated."
"Find the good and build on it" is the
philosophy of the dean, who has never been
known to say an unkind word about anyone.
"I love young peoplef, says Dean Royer,
who teaches not by book alone, but by under-
standing as well.
Demonstrating an almost unmatched rap-
port with Valley students, her enthusiasm
fosters and typifies Valley's college spirit.
"The way to stay young," she says "is to
work with youth. The way to die young iS
to try to keep up with them."
