    Meet the RD

    Nora Chambers RD
    Hannah Gilstrap,
    Resident Director

    "By being an RD, I am able to help, encourage, and love young women who are in a monumental time of transition in their lives. I was impacted by Residential Life and Housing, and now I want to create lasting memories for my students as well. Nora Chambers and Simmons Halls are places where laughter, joy, tears, and lots of pajama parties happen, but it is also where the Lord is found, community is built, and authentic relationships are made. By the end of each year, my hope is that each resident will leave knowing their worth, rooted in the word of God. I pray they will see the community supporting them and want to continue to seek out the beauty around them."

    Community Outreach

    This year, Nora/Simmons will be partnering with "Girls on the Run." They are a international nonprofit who inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We pray that as we partner with Girls on the Run that we will help young girls be able to embrace their differences; find strength in each other; nurture their physical, emotional, and spiritual health; lead with an open heart; and stand up for themselves and others. We are so excited to journey alongside them!
