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:

Alison Vierk

Alison Vierk (Vice President for Ethics and Compliance): Thank you, Alison, for taking time to find and populate key report data for a study important to our campus. You understood what was needed and did not hesitate to help. You made achieving our goal possible! -- Dimples Smith (Human Resources and Institutional Equity)

Bobbi Gibson, Cindy McKinney, Lori O'Connor, Dixie Salts and Vicki Whiteman

Bobbi Gibson, Cindy McKinney, Lori O'Connor, Dixie Salts and Vicki Whiteman (all Business Office Student Life): A big 'Thumbs Up' goes out to the payroll group at Owen business office. They filled in and took over all my responsibilities, duties, payroll and org units while I was on extended leave. They deserve a huge 'Thumbs Up' for all the support given to me while I was off. They are absolutely the best, awesome, and fantastic co-workers. -- Kathy Summerfield (all Business Office Student Life)

Candy Penrod and Betty Weldon

Candy Penrod (Vice President for Information Technology) and Betty Weldon (Procurement Services): Candy provided specific data to assist a program participant in targeting Dell computer purchases for the last year, and Betty provided me with the documentation for those purchases, which enabled me to include precise numbers for an annual report. Thanks to both for going above and beyond! -- Jessica Harvey (Vice President for Information Technology)

Zenephia Evans and Venetria Patton

Zenephia Evans (College of Science) and Venetria Patton (School of Interdisciplinary Studies): On behalf of the Black Caucus of Faculty and Staff, much honor and appreciation to Zenephia Evans and Venetria Patton for spearheading the BCFS Endowment Scholarship Campaign. As a result of their efforts, we were able to surpass our goal of $25,000, which will receive matching funds. This phenomenal achievement will position the BCFS with the opportunity to provide scholarships to Purdue students impacted by need. -- Jacquelyn Thomas-Miller (Human Development and Family Studies)
