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:

Clyde Burghardt

Clyde Burghardt (Materials Management Distribution): I would like to thank Clyde Burghardt for his fantastic customer service. I made a trip to the Purdue Surplus Store to look for office furniture for an upcoming office move. Clyde was extremely helpful in explaining the process, showing me the general location where I could find items I was in search of, then even pulling up 'The Billboard' on the Surplus website to look for other items and helping to load the chairs I purchased in the back of my vehicle. -- Jen Wetli (Dean of Students)

Karil Sommers

Karil Sommers (College of Agriculture): Thank you to Karil Sommers in the Agricultural Business Office, who has provided the most outstanding services and has improved our ability to run the MESA program over the past few months. She has worked so hard. We cannot thank her enough for her positive attitude, hard work and sharp eye for detail! -- Kimber Nicoletti (Youth Development and Agricultural Education)

Thumbs Up: Luke Versprille

Patrick Edwards, assistant director of operations and facilities manager in the Division of Recreational Sports, recognizes Luke Versprille, associate director of facilities and operations, for his dedication to the student employees and facility projects at the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center.
