Thumbs Up Index

"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:

Brian Rose

Brian Rose (Grounds): Wow! Brian Rose read our minds. We had just had a Team Hall discussion the week prior about needing another trash dumpster to help with the overflow for Meredith Hall's service, dining and retail trash. Before we had the opportunity to make the call for a request, we had one delivered. We sincerely thank you, Brian Rose, for being so proactive and seeing that we are well taken care of. Sincerely, Meredith Hall service, dining, retail and students. -- Jill Gray (Meredith Residence Hall)

Laura Miller

Laura Miller (Teaching Success): Laura Miller went above and beyond to help me receive course evaluation data to utilize in the nomination of our program for some awards. Her willingness to listen and understand, as well as her ability to find a way to make things happen, is what makes Purdue great! Thank you, Laura! -- Melody Carducci (Educational Studies)

Lock Shop

Lock Shop: In the hustle and bustle before winter break, the Lock Shop was very responsive to a request that was made of them. It was so appreciated. I have always found the Lock Shop crew to be responsive and cooperative to the many demands placed upon them. Thanks for all of your help! -- Mary Sigman (Statistics)

Marcus Walton

Marcus Walton (Student Activities, Organizations and PMU): I would like to send out a big kudos to one of my co-workers in Hospitality Services (formerly Catering and Events). Thank you to Marcus Walton, senior catering and beverage coordinator, for always being upbeat, team-oriented, outgoing and always saying “hi” and “how are you doing?” with a smile, as well as going above and beyond to meet his responsibilities regardless of what the challenges may be. Marcus sets a wonderful example of dedication, loyalty and representation of our team with such down-to-earth self-confidence and assurance, especially when in a demanding situation. A huge thank you to him for bringing in the sunshine on a cloudy day, and for his continued selflessness and willingness to provide excellent service to his department. -- Ruth Alford (Student Activities, Organizations, and PMU)

Marcy Wilson

Marcy Wilson (Global Engineering Program): Marcy has been extremely helpful and open to questions as I become acclimated to my new position. She is always incredibly understanding and takes time out of her day to guide me. Thank you, Marcy! --Nicole Cox (International Programs in Agriculture)
