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:

Ben Holmes

Ben Holmes (IT Teaching and Learning Technologies): On behalf of Purdue Student Security Patrol, I sincerely thank you for the flawless technical support you've provided with the Purdue Blackboard Integration Project. Our student employees are extremely satisfied with the outcome, as they can securely share, manage, and store information they need. Once again, thank you for your prompt response and service. -- Lt. Song Kang (Purdue University Police Department)

Darlene 'Tink' Cooley and Holly Buskirk

Darlene 'Tink' Cooley and Holly Buskirk (both Parking Facilities): I worked with Holly Buskirk for reserved parking for Pao Hall. Tink came over and talked with us about the number of spots, time, etc. She stopped by the day before to let me know she'd be putting up the barricade with reserve sign, date and times. Then she came in before they were taken down to make sure they could be removed. A special thank you to Holly and Tink for all their help and allowing our patrons to attend without any hassles. We appreciate everything you do. -- Teresa M. Foley (College of Liberal Arts)

Daryl Duncan

Daryl Duncan (Capital Program Management): Daryl has been instrumental in helping us complete construction work on the new Honors College and Residences building. He continues to help with additional updates and with warranty work. We also want to thank him for his help in opening the building in August. We couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again for your help. -- Becky Moyer (Honors College)

Hattie Sturgill

Hattie Sturgill (Human Resources): I want to thank Hattie for being incredibly helpful and patient while assisting me with benefits enrollment. I discovered health insurance is quite daunting; however, Hattie met with me to explain the plans, terminology, processes, everything. She enthusiastically answered all of my questions and sent me helpful follow-up links to make sure I can get all the coverage I need. She turned an intimidating task into a pleasure! Thank you, Hattie! -- Brittany Wright (Graduate School)

Viki Rogers

Viki Rogers (Discovery Park): Thanks to Viki for being so enthusiastic and positive on a Friday afternoon while working through her first DocuSign wire transfer request! -- Lori Barnard (Office of Treasury Operations)
