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:

Elizabeth Martinez and Angelina Munoz

Elizabeth Martinez and Angelina Munoz (both Building Services): We here in ABE want to give our custodial staff Elizabeth Martinez and Angelina Munoz a big 'Thumbs Up' for their care of our building. Elizabeth and Angelina work very hard every day keeping our building looking nice. Our floors are beyond clean and the shine is amazing because of their care even in this sloppy weather. Thank you for taking such good care of ABE. You are appreciated. -- Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering faculty and staff

Mike Hanstra

Mike Hanstra (Building Services): I would like to send a big thank you to Mike Hanstra in Building Services for all of his hard work, attention to detail and his expertise on keeping not only our department (The Retail Pharmacy) looking sharp but the entire main floor in the College of Pharmacy. We want you to know just how much we appreciate your dedication to your position as it is so very welcoming to come into work each morning and have your environment sparkling. It is a great way to start the day, and we have you to thank for helping to make Purdue College of Pharmacy a great place to work! -- Marie Edmondson (The Retail Pharmacy)

Purdue University Fire Department and Physical Facilities Operations and Maintenance shops and Zone Maintenance

Purdue University Fire Department and Physical Facilities Operations and Maintenance shops and Zone Maintenance: Special thanks to Purdue University Fire Department, Chris Marks with Purdue Water Works, Wyatt Carmony with Purdue Grounds, Brian Kocher (Hilltop residence education coordinator) in Residential Life, Ralph Norton and the Operations and Maintenance Plumbing Shop staff along with Steve Critser and the Operations and Maintenance evening zone staff for their assistance last week at Hilltop Apartments due to a hot water line break. All staffs worked very hard in a team effort in assisting our Hilltop maintenance staff members with flooding in two apartment building basements and repairs on the broken hot water line. As facilities manager at Hilltop Apartments, it was great to see all the response for our emergency and the dedicated effort in helping us out at Hilltop Apartments. Once again, on behalf of the entire Hilltop service staff, thank you! -- Brian Siler (Hilltop Apartments)

R. Edie Moffitt

R. Edie Moffitt (College of Liberal Arts): Thanks to Edie Moffitt for helping me understand the grant reimbursement procedures. Edie set up a session with me to go through the processes and make sure I understand my responsibilities. Her presence is much needed and her knowledge of the process is valuable. -- Pamela K. Sari (School of Interdisciplinary Studies)

Student Life Marketing Department

Student Life Marketing Department: I want to send a huge and sincere thank you to my boss, Carol Houston, and the entire Student Life Marketing Department for all of the support and understanding while I was out most of last week for a family emergency. Their compassion and willingness to extend themselves for others makes me proud to be a part of this team. Thank you so much. -- Kate Theobald (Office of Vice Provost for Student Life)

Transportation Services

Transportation Services: I'd like to thank Transportation Services for its fantastic customer service. Our trip was a great success, and this group helped make it happen. They answered my many questions on the reservation end and made pickup for our faculty a breeze. Thank you so much. -- Melody Carducci (Educational Studies)
