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 Smith and Skye Abt

Carrie Smith and Skye Abt (both Buildings and Grounds): Thank you to Carrie and Skye from Buildings and Grounds for rescuing me by lightening my load on a Monday morning! -- Carol Weaver (Agricultural and Biological Engineering)

Chad Mueller

Chad Mueller (IT Teaching and Learning Technologies): Chad is so valuable in his role with digital education. He is precise, knowledgeable and professional. Chad has been such a delight to work with on a recent digital education course. Thank you, Chad, for your diligence, persistence and expertise. You are amazing at what you do, and I have truly appreciated your contributions in collaborating! -- Jennifer Dexter (Certificate Program in Entrepreneurship and Innovation)

Hilltop Apartments Student Office staff

Hilltop Apartments Student Office staff: I would like to recognize the Hilltop Apartments Student Office staff for an exceptional job assisting our full-time staff and RA team with spring checkout. In 16 years at Hilltop, this was the most smoothly executed and paperwork-efficient checkout we have ever had. These young people pulled together as a team, made excellent decisions and accomplished their task with fun and enthusiasm. The level of dedication and professionalism is commendable. -- Jill Harner (Hilltop Apartments)

Julia Lagrange and Rob Barr

Julia Lagrange (College of Science) and Rob Barr (Operations and Maintenance): Thanks to Julia Lagrange, Rob Barr and those who helped in the second-floor move. I know with your continued top-notch support with the project, everything will work out great. -- Jim Emilson (College of Science)

Those who helped with the ABE Graduation Reception:

Those who helped with the ABE Graduation Reception: I would like to thank Becky Peer, Barb Davies, Gail Biberstine, Scott Brand and Carol Weaver for helping to clean up the lab at the ADM Agricultural Innovation Center on the morning of our ABE Graduation Reception on May 13. I'd also like to thank Dan Taylor and Jake DeLion for helping Becky, Barb, Gail and me in the afternoon set up for the reception. It takes quite a few people to get the event ready and I appreciate everyone's willingness to help. The event was wonderful and we received great compliments from students, parents and faculty. I would also like to thank Carol for rearranging the classroom at the center back to normal the Monday after the reception. She is always willing to help out when I need her! -- Yvonne Hardebeck (Agricultural and Biological Engineering)
