Robyn Croft, TA '83, received the Alumni of the Year Award at Homecoming 2018 on October 1, 2018. The TA Alumni of the Year is selected from submitted nominations by any TA alumni to the Alumni Director. Those nominations are then sent to past recipients of the Alumni of the Year Award, whose vote determines that year's winner. The person who nominated Robyn Croft wrote the following letter on her behalf:
Robyn Croft has been a staple in the Tidewater Academy community for many years. She began sharing her talents at TA in 2003. Most recently she has served TA as the Business Office Manager. She has been the business office manager since 2013.
Robyn encompasses everything the Alumni of the Year stands for. She is dedicated to TA, always working long hours in the business office, delivering top-notch customer service. All the while keeping finances private and making recommendations that are in the best interest of Tidewater Academy.
Robyn is a true volunteer, who never says no. She will lend a hand in any situation, from selling Brunswick stew at Homecoming, to writing thousands of thank you notes, she does it all. She always takes the time to "talk" to stakeholders when they need to chat. She has an open door and heart to all. She will never turn anyone away when they need help or just want to stop in for a visit at TA. She is the epitome of customer service at its finest.
Through her many years of service to TA, Robyn has worn many hats as an employee. From her days as upper school secretary, to business office assistant, and now as the financial wizard of the TA books, she has done it all. On any given day, on top of working in the business office you can catch her helping students in any capacity from administering medicine or band aids, to delivering lunches or giving them a ride home. She loves her school, her students, and her co-workers which is evident by the smile she greets you with every day while on the job.
She is also very proud of her legacy at TA, both her children, Katie 12', and Jonathan 16' attended TA, just as she did. She was eager to come on board at TA so she could be close to her children, and watch them grow and develop over the years as a part of the TA family.
Please join me in congratulating our newest recipient of the Alumni of the Year Award, Robyn Croft!
