Melissa Funk

Melissa Funk: Melissa is a valuable part of our department. The first thing when you meet her in our main office, you are greeted with a wonderful smile and friendly welcome. She is also our events coordinator and puts 200% into all she does. At our recent departmental fall welcome picnic, she had all details of the picnic covered and the day was enjoyable to everyone. This is so important, especially with our new students to make such a great impression on them just a few weeks after they arrive at Purdue. It is her goal to make sure our faculty, staff and students feel like family and that they get special treatment because they are in the Botany and Plant Pathology Department and Purdue University. We are extremely proud to nominate her for this recognition. -- Peter Goldsbrough and Pam Mow
