Every morning, as you begrudgingly walk up the hill, you can’t help but smile when you see Maurice in the distance. Nine times out of ten he’ll greet you by name and carry on a small conversation. His positive attitude and contagious smile make his greetings the best part of anyone’s day!

But…what do you know about him? The Royal Reporter interviewed everyone’s favorite faculty member in order to uncover more about the mysterious Maurice.

RR: What’s your favorite part of school day:
M: The beginning of the day. When you girls are coming in, so I can say hi to all of you. 
RR: How do you remember everyone’s name?
M: You know what? I start off with the girls who are playing sports: so when I first started, you girls would have to show me your lanyards when you were leaving…and some of you guys had siblings, and then some names just kind of stick right in your head. Also some of the girls would greet me and interact with me, so it was easy for me to remember their names. 
RR: Which do you prefer: the beginning of school day or end of school day?
M: Well, the beginning of the school day for ME, but also the end of the school day for you girls because you’re in better moods. And you’re also going downhill, so it’s easier on the legs. I have my list of seniors who I can expect to see a little after the bell – Joy, Ava, Sophia Daniels
RR: What are you up to outside the academy?
M: Either working out, working my other jobs, sleeping, or spending time with my girlfriend. 
RR: How many other jobs do you have?
M:They’re all through this particular company called Barcop Protective Services, so they give me various gigs that I do. Some of them are bouncing or working security. I also worked an armed detail, and I was protecting a Jewish temple. 
RR: What’s the coolest job you ever worked?
M: I did security for John Mayer in LA. It was really nice and I was working crowd control. I got to see John Mayer and really listen to his music and see his personality and how he treats other people. It was super cool! That was probably the best gig. 
RR: Whoa!
M: Yeah, and one of the gigs I turned down was a gig for the Kardashians. That could be trouble.

RR: How would you describe the relationship between yourself and Rosary. 

M: It’s getting stronger the longer that I’m here, and I really feel like a part of Rosary. I’m also learning a lot about it because I never knew anything about Catholicism. I’ve learned a lot talking to the teachers, talking to you girls. So with Rosary itself I feel like I’m becoming part of the family. I don’t feel like I’m just the guy in the parking lot. 
RR: Have any pro-tips on being the best security guard?
M: Just…be here on time and look out for and protect my girls.

The more we got to learn about Maurice, the more we loved him! We wanna thank him for spending his days protecting our lives and can’t wait to see him Monday morning!
