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): Ben took the time to customize Blackboard training to meet the needs of the Digital Education staff. It was much needed and appreciated. It was also nice to have the training geared to meet our needs and not just off the shelf training that some of the items are relevant and others are not. This was extremely helpful for the staff. Thank you! -- Robin Cunningham (Digital Education)

Carrie Soloman

Carrie Soloman (Procurement Services): Carrie of the PS Helpdesk helped me with a difficult vendor in regard to the shipping of product with special requirements for terms and conditions. Great job! -- Jerry Bales (Heat and Power Administration)

Chelsea Clodfelder

Chelsea Clodfelder (Agricultural Communication Service): Kudos to Chelsea for organizing and executing a successful Spring Fest this year. In her first year, she was able to navigate the State Street Redevelopment Project, learn all the details that go into planning this huge event, participate in emergency scenario exercises, and do it all with a smile on her face. Well done, Chelsea! -- Danica Kirkpatrick (Agricultural Communication Service)

Halima Gray and Greg Simmons

Halima Gray and Greg Simmons (Office of Marketing and Media): Thanks to Lima Gray and Greg Simmons, Purdue Marketing and Media, for their help with new marketing materials for the ID Card Office. This dynamic duo has been wonderful to work with. Their assistance and customer service are truly top-notch. -- Loribeth Hettinger (Purdue ID Card Office)

ITaP data center moving team

ITaP data center moving team: Just wanted to let all of the computer infrastructure folks know how much we appreciate the effort they invested to move the data center from Freehafer without completely wrecking our ability to get our jobs done! I can't imagine the stress levels, and frankly, don't care to. Thank you for keeping us running. -- Carol Weaver (Agricultural and Biological Engineering)

Pam Mow

Pam Mow (Botany and Plant Pathology): I would like to give a huge 'Thumbs Up' to my supervisor, Pam Mow. During my recent leave, she took over many of my job duties and made for a very smooth transition back to work. I am very thankful to work with such an amazing group of people. -- Lisa Gross (Botany and Plant Pathology)

Scott Sproles

Scott Sproles (Operations and Maintenance): I would like to recognize the talents of Scott Sproles of the Carpentry Shop. He was able to take a verbal design and work his magic to create beautiful wood foot plates and corner guards in the Prusiecki Banquet Room. He is always a joy to work with and provides the Alumni Center with excellent service! -- Michelle McBrite (Purdue Research Foundation-University Development Office)

Todd Abrahamson

Todd Abrahamson (Botany and Plant Pathology): I would like to give a 'Thumbs Up' to Todd Abrahamson. Todd has been very helpful to me in the last few months with some specific job tasks and I am so very grateful! -- Lisa Gross (Botany and Plant Pathology)

Trever Foley, Jacob Isaacs and Kim Joy

Trever Foley, Jacob Isaacs and Kim Joy (Student Activities, Organizations and PMU): I would like to thank the Student Involvement team in SAO for completing over 890 student organization interviews and maintaining student event reviews. Because of your diligence, we are more informed and can be more intentional in the work that we do. Keep up the good work! -- Martia Brawner King (Student Activities, Organizations and PMU)
