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:

David Raisor

David Raisor (Student Activities, Organizations and Purdue Memorial Union): Our department began coordinating a research poster symposium over summer 2017 before I came on board to the department. The symposium details were handed to me before completion, and David worked very courteously and professionally with me as I asked many questions of him as I worked to complete the final details. Thank you, David, for your hard work and coordination in making our symposium possible. -- Kristy Bennett (Curriculum and Instruction)

Elizabeth Hartley

Elizabeth Hartley (University Residences/Resident Life): Elizabeth Hartley and staff hosted the University Residences Leadership Brunch in November. It was attended by alumni, administrators, current students in leadership roles in our system and other leadership guests. What a great way to engage with others and enable a free-flow environment for idea and history sharing, and to show value to developing chieftains. Elizabeth does a great job representing our system and tapping into resources to showcase what makes us all proud, particularly for prospective students. Keep up the good work! -- William Heidbreder (University Residences/Resident Life)

Family Weekend participants

Family Weekend participants: Parent and Family Connections would like to thank all areas that participated in Family Weekend 2017. This large-scale event cannot happen without the commitment from our campus partners. Thank you for welcoming and engaging Purdue families! -- Kelley Stier (Parent and Family Connections)

Megan Baer

Megan Baer (Payroll and Tax Services): Megan helped PMO's business office in a huge way by helping get the many consultants for the Purdue Christmas Show paid on time. Megan was very professional, polite and accommodating. Thank you, Megan! -- Andrea Ridge (Purdue Musical Organizations)

Rick Eberle

Rick Eberle (Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital): Rick does an outstanding job in the Large Animal Hospital, keeping the facility clean and working solo on the night shift. He goes over and above to help with what needs to be done. Thank you, Rick, for all of your hard work. -- Lisa Hunter (Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital)

Steve Jaeger, Tim Kite

Steve Jaeger, Tim Kite (both IT Application Services) and Charles Smith (Agriculture Information Technology): I would like to thank Steve Jaeger, Charlie Smith and Tim Kite for their Herculean efforts this past weekend to migrate the College of Agriculture's 2010 SharePoint environment to 2013. This was a major upgrade that involved various complexities and challenges. The success of this migration was due in large part to their attention to detail, excellent troubleshooting skills and sheer persistence. I cannot thank them enough for powering through this weekend's obstacles to achieve success. -- Cinnamon Gallatin (Agriculture Information Technology)

Tom Hanna

Tom Hanna (Chemistry): I would like to give a 'Thumbs Up' to Tom Hanna. Tom is someone you can rely on in a time of need and he does it with a smile. His generosity and willingness to help does not go unnoticed. Thanks, Tom, for all you do. -- Jackie Butram (Chemistry)
