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:

Carol Horan

Carol Horan (Registrar): Without Carol's help we would struggle getting our courses into Unitime for scheduling. Carol is not only quick to respond but always helpful, going above and beyond what is required. For us, who schedule few classes, we couldn't do it without her assistance. For Spring 2017, we had a class that we wanted to change the location very late in the scheduling process. Carol was more than accommodating. Thanks, Carol, for all you do! -- Nina Robinson and Patti Finney (Environmental and Ecological Engineering)

Dan Wasmuth

Dan Wasmuth (Operations and Maintenance): I would like to recognize Dan Wasmuth for being so determined in working to solve the mystery issue with the service entrance door at Dauch Alumni Center. Staff members and vendors have been struggling to open the door for quite some time. Dan was unwavering while trying to narrow down the solution. He employed the assistance of Emmett Davis of the Lock Shop. Together they solved this longstanding problem. Thanks to Dan for being diligent to fix the problem! -- Michelle McBrite (Purdue Research Foundation-University Development Office)

PACADA Professional Development Committee

PACADA Professional Development Committee: The PACADA community would like to acknowledge Jennifer Alter, Maria Hartwig, and the Professional Development Committee for their hard work on the 2016 PACADA Fall Retreat. The event was a big success thanks to your dedication and energy. Great job! -- PACADA Communication and Connections Committee

Patty Turner and Megan Uselton

Patty Turner and Megan Uselton (both Materials Management Distribution): Thank you for your courteous and prompt service in our recent shipment request to shipping at MMDC to 40-plus locations throughout the state in a tight time frame. You make a great team! -- Nutrition Education Program

Richard Badders and Phil Qualio

Richard Badders (Operations and Maintenance) and Phil Qualio (College of Engineering): When an electrical issue came up in Neil Armstrong Hall at noon on a Friday, Richard and his team quickly were on site to assess the issue. When it was determined that a part had to be ordered and we would have to have a short-notice power shutdown on a Saturday to fix the problem, Richard and his team were quick to help educate the departments of the impending power outage and fixed the issue as promised on that Saturday. Thank you to Richard and his team along with our building deputy Phil Qualio for a job well done. -- Kerry Ticen (College of Engineering)
