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:

Carrie Anderson

Carrie Anderson (Wiley Dining Court): Carrie took the time to walk a 4-H Round-Up delegate and her mother through the food court and explain the ingredients lists at each station. For a child with severe food allergies, this made all the difference in her three-day experience at Purdue. Thanks, Carrie! -- Rena Sheldon (Field Extension Educators)

Jordan Coy

Jordan Coy (Payroll and Tax Services): Jordan got things removed so I could key them in at the last minute before the pause so that leaves will be as accurate as possible going forward. Super-fast response time. She got it done! Thanks so much. -- Beth Russell (Physical Facilities Fiscal Affairs)

Julie Cooper, Dian Lanie, Linda Ray and Christy Waters

Julie Cooper, Dian Lanie, Linda Ray and Christy Waters (all Purdue Research Foundation-University Development Office): These ladies make my day. They get the job done each and every day with excellence. UDO and I are lucky to have them on the team. Thanks so much for your great work ethic! -- Jamie Hendershot (Purdue Research Foundation-University Development Office)

Michelle McBrite

Michelle McBrite (Purdue Research Foundation-University Development Office): Great work! Michelle is always finding ways to make life in Dauch Alumni Center better for all who enter its doors. For all that you do, Michelle, thank you! -- Jamie Hendershot (Purdue Research Foundation-University Development Office)

Sgt. Nick Crosby

Sgt. Nick Crosby (Purdue University Police Department): During July move-in at Harrison Hall, I overheard a conversation by two students. One of them was commenting on how he got 'turned around' and wasn't sure where to go. He looked around and made eye contact with 'a cop' and thought, 'Uh oh … what did I do?' Then the officer smiled at him and the student was stunned. He said, 'Oh my God. He actually wanted to help me.' This student was talking to another student about the great service he received from one of our own PUPD officers. I think this speaks volumes about our Purdue community, and I wanted to let Sgt. Crosby know how that one simple act of kindness affected one of our students on his first day. We here in University Residences-Facilities appreciate all the help you give us during move-in, but this means even more. Thank you from all of University Residences-Facilities! -- Carol Brawner (University Residences-Facilities)
