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 Rosenberger

Carol Rosenberger (College of Health and Human Sciences): Tremendous thanks goes to Carol Rosenberger for all of the work she has done to support the academic advisors and HHS undergraduate EPC in drafting, reviewing, revising (and re-revising) all of our degree requirements and eight-semester plans. You have done so with great attention to detail, wisdom, patience and a healthy sense of humor. We greatly appreciate you and the work you do! -- Shane Hawkins-Wilding (College of Health and Human Sciences)

Chloe Jefferson, Christine Charles, Alyssa Moreno and Kipchumba Kibet

Chloe Jefferson, Christine Charles, Alyssa Moreno and Kipchumba Kibet (all College of Agriculture): 'Thumbs Up' to Chloe Jefferson, Christine Charles, Alyssa Moreno and Kipchumba Kibet, all members of MANRRS (Minorities in Agricultural and Natural Resources Related Sciences), for their help with the second water drive organized by College of Agriculture graduate students Amonte Martin and Brandon Allen. These students volunteered their time and MANRRS provided transportation for the water drive organizers to Michigan and back. Donors to the second water drive provided more than $2,000 in cash that was used to purchase some 15,000 bottles of water and other supplies. Thanks to these students for their time and effort. They truly displayed the Purdue spirit of giving. -- Jay Akridge (College of Agriculture)

College of Agriculture Food Drive representatives

College of Agriculture Food Drive representatives: A huge thank you to each of the College of Ag Food Drive representatives -- Pat Jonas, Carol Weaver, Mike Gunderson, Tracy Buck, Connie Foster, Stacie Kitchen, Lisa Gross, Beth York, Leslie Christopher, Jen Deiser, Kim Muldoon and Megan Gunn -- for all of their hard work, creativity and support for the annual food drive in support of Food Finders and the fight to end hunger. With their amazing work, the College of Agriculture raised $10,805 and 1,204 pounds of food, equaling 33,241 meals. This could not have been done without each and every one of you, great job! -- Melissa Funk (College of Agriculture)

Erik Kurdelak and Osvaldo Campanella

Erik Kurdelak (Department of Food Science) and Osvaldo Campanella (Agricultural and Biological Engineering): We had the opportunity to get some high-quality photos of our students working in the Pilot Plant, and communication wires got crossed. Erik and Dr. Campanella rose to the occasion and rescued our photo shoot! -- Carol Weaver (Agricultural and Biological Engineering)

Lynn Cornell

Lynn Cornell (Mechanical Engineering): Lynn has been the best mentor. She really made the mentor program shine and is a wonderful representation of the program and University as a whole. -- Holly Tittle-Hudson (School of Hospitality and Tourism Management)

Rob Hart

Rob Hart (IT Customer Relations): Rob is an amazing videographer and media design expert, but the best part of working with him is his kindness and professionalism. I recently had the pleasure of working on a digital education class with Rob. Rob is quick to respond to requests, collaborative, dedicated and truly has a passion for his work. Thank you, Rob, for producing an exceptional product for the professional development course! -- Jennifer Dexter (Certificate Program in Entrepreneurship and Innovation)

Taylor Dunfee, Melissa Geiger and Jayne Price

Taylor Dunfee, Melissa Geiger and Jayne Price (all Youth Development and Agricultural Education): A big thank you to Taylor, Melissa and Jayne from YDAE. We greatly appreciate all of your hard work and dedication. Without your support, we would not be as great as we are today. -- Elizabeth Byers (Youth Development and Agricultural Education)
