Meet Jackie Manley
Student Life Specialist 

How long have you been at Reynolds? 
I have been working at Reynolds for over 16 years.

What do you like most about Reynolds? 
I work in the office of Student Life as I love working with the students, and the freedom my office has to try new things. I also love the leadership opportunities we offer and making a difference in student lives here at Reynolds.

What jobs did you have as a teenager? 
I didn’t work too much when I was high school - on occasions I would do babysitting jobs for my mom’s friends. 

What do you like to do in your off-time? 
I love hanging out with my friends and family. I am one of the youth advisers at my church. I’m also the adviser for our praise team and sing in two choirs. I also love doing volunteer work, so I often do that on the weekends. 

What is your favorite movie? 
I love all the Transformer movies….except for the 3rd episode. 

If you could have one super power, what would be? 
Time Manipulation! All good times would last forever and awkward moments would never happen. I would go back and make changes to bad decisions. I could see people who died that I truly miss --- so yes time manipulation would be my super power. 

If you were given $5 million, what would you do? 
No brainer - I would help my family and friends. I would give to my church, help the homeless and donate to my schools….the list could go on and on. I love to see people happy, and if I could make someone else’s life easier by giving them money, I would it in a heartbeat. 

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
My fear of public speaking - I know people think because I like to talk all the time I don’t have a problem speaking, but I hate to stand up in front of a crowed and speak.

What one word would you use to describe Reynolds?
Outstanding! We have great opportunities for our students to succeed, I love the family feel here. It’s a great place to be.
