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:

Diana Byers

Diana Byers (Office of the Vice President for Information Technology): Diana was a huge help with placing orders and filling in for superwoman Carol Funkhouser. Diana was always helpful and friendly, and I really appreciate it! -- Theresa Morgan (IT Customer Relations and Process Management)

Ed Nelson, Connie Reckowsky, Brian Cortez and Mike Humphrey

Ed Nelson, Connie Reckowsky, Brian Cortez and Mike Humphrey (all Krannert School of Management): I was recently out on a 12-day leave. While I was away, Ed, Connie, Brian and Mike filled in for me in various capacities in the Krannert School of Management. Their extra work, on my behalf, was done well and without any problems. Thanks, Krannert fourth-floor team! -- Tom Brown (Krannert School of Management)

Greg Simmons

Greg Simmons (Marketing and Media): I would like to thank Greg Simmons from the Office of Marketing and Media for his help in getting a project done for the College of Engineering. After making several changes, he was very courteous and polite and took care of the revisions to meet our deadlines. Thank you so much for your help, Greg. -- Kerry Ticen (College of Engineering)

Kathy Manwaring

Kathy Manwaring (Purdue Dining and Catering): Kathy was such a huge help in all of the Student Life Food Drive logistics for the month of September. She helped us locate a scale for it, helped us connect the information across her huge department and -- on top of that -- was always so positive and extremely resourceful! She deserves two 'Thumbs Up'! -- Melanie Arce (Office of the Vice Provost for Student Life)

Sarah Shea

Sarah Shea (Recreation and Wellness): Sarah was our volunteer driver for the Student Life Food Drive. She not only volunteered their University vehicle to help the Unity Committee pick up food, but took a few hours out of her busy day to drive us around campus picking up food from the several buildings in Student Life. Sarah had a great attitude about it all and was very helpful! We wouldn't have had a successful food drive without her assistance. -- Melanie Arce (Office of the Vice Provost for Student Life)

Scott Ballew

Scott Ballew (IT Application Services): Scott Ballew was very professional and a pleasure to work with when moving over the entire College of Veterinary Medicine's web presence to a new server. He was very attentive to detail and got us up and running without any noticeable downtime. We would highly recommend that other colleges make the move to the newest environment without hesitation of the process. Thanks again to Scott and the other members of the Web Services team who made this all possible. -- Osmar Lopez (College of Veterinary Medicine)
