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:

Beth Freeman

Beth Freeman (Accounting Services): Beth always goes above and beyond to help get rush payments processed for Athletics. The Substitute W-9 can be a challenge at times to get from vendors; however, once it is received Beth will promptly get things processed. She communicates well and always responds back to my emails. Kudos to you, Beth, and thank you! -- Kara Shufflebarger (Intercollegiate Athletics)

Carla Kidwell, Kathleen Bohde and Tony Carrell

Carla Kidwell (Field Extension Educators), Kathleen Bohde (Field Extension Educators) and Tony Carrell (College of Agriculture): In addition to their other job responsibilities, Carla, Kathleen and Tony worked for four years planning and organizing the 2017 National Association of Extension 4-H Agents Conference. This was the first time in 50 years that Indiana hosted the event, and it was extremely successful with over 1,000 professionals from across the country attending this development opportunity. -- Angie Riffle (Field Extension Educators)

JoAnne Frye

JoAnne Frye (Building Services): Jo was recently recognized by someone on our Day Shift Safety Committee for putting safety first. She recently saw an older gentleman carrying three large bags down the stairs at Stewart Center after a conference. Seeing him struggle and concerned for his safety, Jo did not hesitate and asked if he needed help. She and a colleague helped the gentleman with his bags down the stairs without incident. Thank you, Jo, for putting safety first. -- Shane Haselby (Building Services) and the Building Services Day Shift Safety Committee
