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:

BME vet tech team

BME vet tech team: Thank you all for welcoming me to the team and making the transition super easy. Thank you all for being patient during my training and answering all of my questions. Thanks again! -- Lagora Carrell (Biomedical Engineering)

HSSE Library staff

HSSE Library staff: Thank you to the HSSE Library staff for assisting me with an urgent task on a Saturday. I really appreciate the help they provided. -- Darryl Schneider (Psychological Sciences)

Karla Calvin

Karla Calvin (School of Aviation and Transportation Technology): Karla is a fabulous teammate. Even when she is swamped, she is never too busy to lend a helping hand. She helps to make our office environment welcoming, warm and positive. Thank you for all you do, Karla! -- Emily Birge (School of Aviation and Transportation Technology)

Kate Caward

Kate Caward (College of Pharmacy): Kate and the entire team at the Office of Experiential Learning in the College of Pharmacy have been absolutely amazing. It is my third week working for Purdue in my new role and position, and Kate has gone absolutely above and beyond in welcoming me. She is always positive, helpful, patient and thoughtful. Her pleasant demeanor and work ethic make coming to work every day a pleasant experience. Thank you so much for all you do! -- Rachel Swank (College of Pharmacy)

Roy Ellrich

Roy Ellrich (Building Services): Just a follow-up to Roy’s 'Thumbs Up' regarding his team’s performance at Elliott. I knew that when Roy was hired, he would become an exceptional employee and an exceptional team leader, and he has proven me right. Good job, Roy! -- Howard Byers (Retiree)

Sheila Featherston

Sheila Featherston (English): Sheila has gone way out of her way to make sure that all of the faculty, staff and graduate students are getting their mail. She sorts, puts important mail in offices and notifies recipients of mail deliveries. With so many working remotely, it is above what is expected of her. -- Joy Kane (English)

Tony Hayden

Tony Hayden (IT Customer Relations and Process Management): Tony from ITAP spent a couple of hours one day helping me fix a problem with my laptop and remote docking station. Not only did he fix the problem and have a great attitude about it though it was a process, he made several things work better than before. Thanks Tony! – Valerie Taylor (Business Management)
