Thumbs Up

"Thumbs Up" gives faculty and staff the chance to recognize others on campus for a job well done.

This week's "Thumbs Up" go to:

Margaret Andrzejewski

Margaret Andrzejewski (Sponsored Program Services): Margaret realized the need to develop a process for communicating undergraduate fellowship payments, since one had not yet been created. Her initiative in identifying this need and pulling together various offices to meet the need is much appreciated. -- Ellen Barbour (Financial Aid)

Bobbe Molter

Bobbe Molter (Consumer Science): Bobbe is an academic advisor in Consumer Science and consistently goes above and beyond to support our department. Not only is she absolutely awesome at her job, but she is also fun to work with. Thank you for being a great colleague! -- Meghan Norris (Consumer Science)

Eva Taylor

Eva Taylor (Harrison Residence Hall): Eva goes above and beyond in Harrison Hall and is always flexible in her scheduling if need be. This does not just happen in Harrison Hall, her home hall where she is a night access clerk. If she is needed in another hall she goes over willingly when asked and never hesitates. She is not only an outstanding worker in her department but in others as well. The residents always come first for Eva, and she will work diligently to make sure those residents are taken care of. She is an asset to University Residences and Student Success at Purdue. Thank you! -- Debbie Crowe (Earhart Residence Hall)

Linda Isley

Linda Isley (Division of Recreational Sports): We have been short-staffed lately at the Co-Rec. Linda, who is a level 5 custodian, has been at the Co- Rec for 10 years. With her knowledge and experience she is a great help as a crew leader! She is always working to help keep everything clean. She is great at telling someone what is being missed, so things get done. If anyone has questions about their work she is the one to ask because she has been at the old Rec Sports, and now carrying on her knowledge in the new building! Thank you for all that you do, Linda! -- Christa Akers (Division of Recreational Sports)

Michelle Spear

Michelle Spear (Payroll Services): The HFS-BO Payroll Group is very grateful for all the hard work and dedication that Michelle Spear provides to HFS. We know that it has been exceptionally hard to keep up with all of the employment actions during a normal year. However, with transferring to Electronic Timekeeping this past year and the high volume of actions in August, January and May, she has consistently made sure the paperwork is processed in a timely manner. We truly appreciate all she does. -- HFS-BO Payroll Group.

Peggy Blessing

Peggy Blessing (Krannert School of Management): Peggy is the office manager and event coordinator in the MBA and MS program office at Krannert. She works so hard to make sure each event we have for our students goes off without a hitch. The food and setup are always immaculate. She stays late to make sure the building looks great after an event. She really cares about our students, the building and making sure everyone enjoys our activities. We couldn't do our jobs without her. Thanks, Peggy. You are a real blessing. -- Tad Brinkerhoff (Krannert School of Management)
