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:

Greg Lindberg

Greg Lindberg (College of Agriculture): A huge 'Thumbs Up' to Greg Lindberg. As we migrate to using WebEx for more of our meetings, Greg has been instrumental in showing me how facilitate the usage of WebEx. He is always willing to step away from whatever he's working on to assist me, and I truly appreciate that. He's very deserving of a 'Thumbs Up'! -- Marion Welsh (College of Agriculture)

Jarrod Doucette

Jarrod Doucette (Forestry and Natural Resources): Jarrod was able to think creatively to fix an expensive video camera. I would not be able to take it on an important trip to Costa Rica if he did not come through! -- Bryan Pijanowski (Forestry and Natural Resources)

Joan Scherer, Natalie McHenry and Paul Bowman

Joan Scherer, Natalie McHenry and Paul Bowman (Building Services): Thanks to Joan Scherer for her hard work and dedication to making the DLR look great on a daily basis. Also a shout-out to Natalie McHenry and Paul Bowman, who are always there to fill in for vacations and helping out in preparing for large events. The DLR is very fortunate to have such a dedicated, professional and hardworking team! -- Laura Warner (Discovery Learning Research Center)

Kasi Jones

Kasi Jones (Student Success): Another fantastic STAR program by Kasi, the Student Success staff and student ambassadors. Our freshman class of 2020 and their families were well taken care of for four weeks. -- T.R. Oneal (Purdue Polytechnic Institute)

Kristin Deckard-Dawson, Holly Englert, Morgan Kuryla, Justin Wolfe and Ashley Maloff

Kristin Deckard-Dawson (Mechanical Engineering), Holly Englert (Mechanical Engineering), Morgan Kuryla (Industrial Engineering), Justin Wolfe (Mechanical Engineering) and Ashley Maloff (Mechanical Engineering): Thank you for volunteering to assist the First-Year Engineering Program in the advising of our STAR 2016 attendees. Many thanks to their supervisors, James Jones and Pat Brunese, for allowing these staff members to be away from their assigned responsibilities to assist our STAR 2016 students. -- Billi Jennings (Engineering Education)

Sandy Carter and Robin Jones

Sandy Carter and Robin Jones (both IT Application Services): A big thank you to Sandy Carter and Robin Jones for always being available to answer questions and provide assistance. Their quick response time and helpful attitude make them a pleasure to work with! -- Amy Deitrich (Human Resources)

Scott Ballew, Timothy Kite, Heather Brotherton and Tanya Irwin

Scott Ballew, Timothy Kite, Heather Brotherton and Tanya Irwin (all IT Infrastructure Services): A thank you needs to be shared with Scott Ballew, Timothy Kite, Heather Brotherton and Tanya Irwin for keeping Purdue's WordPress server working smoothly, offering web support that goes above and beyond, teaching with patience and for their persistence to troubleshoot web issues. You always receive a quick response and great communication with their follow-up. -- Diana Evans (Forestry and Natural Resources)

Theresa Kline and Bonnie Sprague

Theresa Kline (McCutcheon Residence Hall) and Bonnie Sprague (Harrison Residence Hall): I would like to nominate Theresa Kline and Bonnie Sprague for a 'Thumbs Up' award. They are the two clerks in University Residences that take care of the students attending summer school. From being available from check-ins on the weekends and handling their needs as they live with us, they do a terrific job for a process that is relatively new. Thanks! -- Debbie Crowe (Earhart Residence Hall)
