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:

Jon D. Biggs

Jon D. Biggs (Vice President for Human Resources): Jon was a great help in assisting my graduate students in developing an OSHA-focused virtual reality training simulation. He even met with the students after the regular hours to help them with the project. The simulation would not have been the same if it weren’t for him. -- Mesut Akdere (Technology Leadership and Innovation)

Vicki Gilbert and Travis Gowan

Vicki Gilbert and Travis Gowan (both School of Aviation and Transportation Technology): Vicki Gilbert and Travis Gowan responded to a last-minute request to host guests of Purdue with a tour of the Purdue University Airport. Since our guests were Amelia Earhart's niece and her son, the tour left a great impression of Purdue and Amelia’s influence while at Purdue. Thank you! -- Terry Knight (School of Interdisciplinary Studies)

Yvette Rosas, Lynly Horine, Christina Wilson, Robin Waling and Jairo Marmolejos

Yvette Rosas, Lynly Horine, Christina Wilson, Robin Waling (all Chemical Engineering) and Jairo Marmolejos (Aeronautics and Astronautics): Yvette Rosas, Lynly Horine, Christina Wilson, Robin Waling and Jairo Marmolejos are awesome. I cannot express enough gratitude for the work and effort you all performed in order to keep my desk going while I was on leave. Thank you for continuing to be a great support, for me and for our school! -- Aimee Mansfield (Chemical Engineering)
