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:

Biology Business Office staff

Biology Business Office staff: I'd like to recognize and thank the entire staff of the Biology Business Office for coming together to cover all of the purchasing duties during the extended absence of another staff member. You guys always pull together and just get the work done. Purchasing in a large department is a huge and complex task and not easy to cover. Great job everyone! This is what teamwork is about. -- Tammy Emilson (College of Science Business Office)

Jane Coleman

Jane Coleman (Payroll Services): We recently moved and had not received our W-2s in the mail. I contacted Jane, and she gave me several options of how to obtain a new W-2 in case the USPS did not forward the originals on time. She dug deeper into the issue than I had expected and had great advice. She went above and beyond my expectations! -- T.R. Oneal (College of Technology)

Kelly Felty

Kelly Felty (Krannert School of Management): Kelly is a good boss and also very nice to me. She is also funny. -- Zac Brewer (Krannert School of Management)

Patty Riley

Patty Riley (IT Customer Relations): Patty Riley, a clerk in IT Customer Relations, provides excellent customer service and has on many occasions saved me from disaster. Not only does Patty ensure that I have what I need when I need it, but she goes above and beyond her job responsibilities. Patty identifies my future events, contacts me, and checks to see that I have everything I need. I cannot count the number of times she has been my saving grace and provided service to me at the 11th hour. What a valuable asset you are to Purdue University, Patty. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! -- Carrie Hanson (Human Resources)
