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:

James Ausban

James Ausban (Operations and Maintenance): James came to the rescue at my store, Stewart Market in Stewart Center. When no one else was able to fix a piece of equipment, James was called in and fixed it! Great job, James! -- Deb Jones (Dining and Catering)

Janelle Musch, Lance Connolly and Ed Dunn

Janelle Musch and Lance Connolly (Office of Special Events) and Ed Dunn (ITaP Video and Multimedia Production Services): I would like to recognize and sincerely thank Janelle Musch and Lance Connolly from the Office of Special Events, as well as Ed Dunn, manager of ITaP's video and multimedia production services, for their exceptional and successful efforts to help the Board of Trustees honor Trustee John Hardin on the occasion of his retirement from the board after 24 years of service. Janelle and Lance worked magic, and Ed helped produce a special video tribute for Trustee Hardin to treasure. Working with these talented colleagues was a joy! -- Janice Indrutz (Board of Trustees)

Patty Turner

Patty Turner (Material Management Distribution): Thank you to Patty Turner for holding a most informative session today, Purdue Shipping World Training. Also, a shout out to everyone in MMDC who keep us moving from behind the scenes. -- Matt Jarvi (Department of Comparative Pathobiology)

Sara Conarroe and Building Services staff

Sara Conarroe and Building Services staff: Since the police department operates 24/7/365, our facility poses additional challenges to our building service staff. Last two weeks, she and her team members had put in a tremendous amount of effort to scrub and wax the entire building, sometimes section by section, to minimize the impact on the officers and dispatchers to perform their daily duty. Thank you for your hard work. -- Lt. S. Kang (Purdue Police Department)

Stacie Kitchen

Stacie Kitchen (Botany and Plant Pathology): I want to thank Stacie for her outstanding attitude and wonderful and welcoming personality. She came to our department as a new employee in February and brought a breath of fresh air with her. She has made the main office such a welcoming place for faculty, staff and students to come. She also has approached all of her duties and any extra duties we have given her with that wonderful and helpful attitude. Thank you, Stacie! -- Pam Mow (Botany and Plant Pathology)
