Primary reason

Valtiere is a stalwart part of the Arcona Summit. While not flashy or loud, he leads with pride and carries himself with an air of excellence that encourages others around him to follow suite. While adjusting to his real-boy job after school, he still made sure to step fully into his move from BTL to Aedile. It's not an easy move in the midst of a war, but even when we selected him to lead Void Squadron he didn't miss a beat and rose to the occasion. He finished in the Dark Crusade as Arcona's 6th highest participant.

On top of this, his lighthearted attitude outside of his duty as Aedile is contagious. He supplements that with firm leadership and made a rather inspiring speech towards the end of Ziost when we needed to kick our members into high gear. His role in his teams Novae winning Ad Campaign Video shows his dedication to the club both in and out of character. Dedication like this deserves to be rewarded.

Thank you Valt for everything you do and continue to work towards.

Additional reasons

Valtiere is an important member of not only Qel-Droma, but Arcona as well. As Battleteam Leader he was extremely effective. During his transition to Aedile and a new job in real life he did not disappear. He stepped up to the challenge and went 4/4 on Ziost, amounting to an amazing 27/31 entries for the entire Dark Crusade. He was a great General for our Main Forces leading to 4 Novae, with the most recent being for an amazing Ad Campaign video.

Now that the Dark Crusade is over we've been discussing ways for Valt to be a more visible Aedile and for that to basically just be a second Quaestor of Qel-Droma. I cannot wait to watch what we're going to accomplish together next.

Thank you for all of your hard work! I look forward to celebrating your first sacramental award and our future!

Man, thank goodness for Valtiere. During my time as Quaestor of Qel-Droma, Valtiere served as a Battleteam Leader, and he was one of the most effective and reliable leaders that I worked with in the House. He's been an absolute model of efficiency in the Dark Crusade, and has coaxed out tons of submissions from his members in between his own efforts.

When I got the call-up to Proconsul, I was initially concerned about Qel-Droma, given that the House was losing its Quaestor and Aedile all at once. That concern faded seconds later, when I remembered that Valtiere was still on the staff. His transition to Aedile was seamless, and the support he has provided to Ernordeth during the transfer to Quaestor has been critical to Qel-Droma's sustained excellence.

I'm excited to see what Valtiere can do in the future, and I know that his leadership will continue to elevate Qel-Droma and reflect well on himself and his Clan. Thanks for your incredible dedication and your herculean efforts this year, Valt -- the rest of us are still watching, and I'm sure the second act will be as fantastic as the first.
