So a little over two years ago, I decided to make a little group called Rooster Buckeyes because I wanted to meet the fans of Rooster Teeth that were in Ohio. It was just a simple little thing that I wanted to make so others could come together and meet members of the community. It began to grow before my eyes and seeing everyone so excited to have an active RT Ohio group made me so happy because I was able to do a small thing for this community that means so much to me and a lot of people. But as it began to grow, I began to be in way over my head for doing something like this on my own while trying to balance applying for colleges and volleyball.
So about a year ago, I had to pass the torch on due going to college in a different state and playing a college sport on top of that. It was hard to pass on something that I loved doing so much, but I knew that it would be better for the community. I was beyond lucky to find @MeganC121 who had previous experience in social media management to take over the group. She and Phil (our head Extra Life Mastermind who I can''t remember the RT username of) have taken the group to such great heights and have done more than I ever could have imagined with hosting community events across the state and being the third biggest community group to raise money for Extra Life and Akron Children's hospital. They continue to build such an amazing community and I couldn't be more grateful for what they have done.
Pretty much what I'm trying to say is thank you two from the bottom of my heart for taking this silly little idea I had when I was 18 and building into such a welcoming and awesome community. I see what you do everyday and it inspires me to do more for this community. Without you guys, Rooster Buckeyes wouldn't be the community is today and I am forever thankful for all the hours you put in to make it great. Keep being awesome
( Also mini not so mini shoutout to @dizzyblinker and all the people in RT World & ICD for helping me during my short time as a community admin. You guys are what make this community so special and I'm so lucky to be able to call you guys friends. Even though I'm not active in the Discord anymore, I still see all the amazing things you do for this community and I admire you all. Keep working hard and being the light of the community!)
