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:

Ashlyn Ruff and Mary Beth Lencke

Ashlyn Ruff and Mary Beth Lencke (both Exploratory Studies): Ashlyn and Mary Beth recently planned an awesome food tour of Chicago for their learning communities. It was really exciting to see how much their students loved the opportunity to explore the city, try new things, and make friends along the way. Great job and thank you for being such positive influences on the students in Exploratory Studies. You rock and help make this program great! -- Nicole Cox (Exploratory Studies)

Dustin Jones and Jason Fink

Jill Gray and the Meredith service department

We couldn't have done it without you. Thanks for all of your help. Boiler Up! -- Alan Crabtree (Purdue Dining & Catering)

Laura Lange

Laura Lange (IT Customer Relations and Process Management): Laura worked on an issue I was having with a program for two days.

Thanks so much for all of your help, Laura! -- Michelle Ellrich (Purdue Memorial Union Dining)

Tim Kite (IT Application Services): Tim is always there when we find the crazy problems on a web server. He is always patient, he always helps, and he always gets the problem sorted. He is the best! -- Wright Frazier (College of Veterinary Medicine)
