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:

Amanda Esgar

Amanda Esgar (Purdue Print and Digital Services delivered by Xerox): Amanda assisted in tracking down a returned package that the company was disputing had been received. She went above and beyond to help track and provided information quickly and without hesitation. She provided great customer service and we appreciate all her help. -- Carmen Williams (Recreation and Wellness)

College of Engineering tour team

College of Engineering tour team: I would like to thank the College of Engineering team that came together to make the first tours for the ACE program happen in Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering. Many thanks to Jill Folkerts, Donna Bystrom, Phil Qualio, David Bowker, Kim Crowe and all of the students and staff that were involved to make this such a success. Thank you all. -- Kerry Ticen (College of Engineering)

Mark Fell and Purdue Grounds staff

Mark Fell and Purdue Grounds staff: The Hilltop service staff would like to give special thanks to Mark Fell and the Purdue Grounds staff for all their help in fall leaf removal at Hilltop Apartments. We also very much appreciate all the help we get from the Purdue Grounds staff through the entire year, which makes our grounds look great. -- Brian Siler (Hilltop Apartments)

Rick Hunt and Howard Weaver

Rick Hunt and Howard Weaver (both Operations and Maintenance): On behalf of Rich Gallatin, Hovde building deputy; the Bursar’s Office; the Purdue ID Card Office; and the Office of the Registrar, I would like to thank Rick Hunt and Howard Weaver of the Paint Shop for a job well done. The repair and update of the women’s restroom on the ground floor of Hovde Hall looks fantastic. -- Sarah Rumpke (Registrar)

School of Aviation and Transportation Technology Business Office

School of Aviation and Transportation Technology Business Office: I am writing to let you know how grateful I am to have our wonderful business office. I have been in the secretary V position with SATT for 30 days; everyone in the business office has been so patient and kind. More than once there has been an 'emergency' that has popped up where I have needed immediate help, and without their timely assistance, it could have spelled disaster.
