Patty Payne, Rita Craig and Lisa Higbie

Patty Payne, Rita Craig and Lisa Higbie (Transportation Service): The wonderful ladies at the Transportation office made my day -- twice! Upon my return from deployment, I had arranged to get a Purdue car for a work trip on my first day back. To my surprise, Patty, Rita, and Lisa put up a "welcome back" banner and made cookies and treats, but I came in a couple of hours early to get the car and so not everything for the celebration was ready. They wanted to be sure I didn't miss out on this wonderful celebration, so they sent a fabric basket (camo design!) to my office filled with chocolate goodies. Patty, Rita and Lisa are always so helpful and nice, but this was well beyond my wildest imagination. They are truly so wonderful to work with and so very thoughtful. It is always a joy to work with all the folks at the Transportation office. -- Sandra Dye (Military Family Research Institute)
