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:

Chrissy Crawley

Chrissy Crawley (Purdue Musical Organizations): I am so thankful for Chrissy’s unselfish and dedicated work with Purdue Musical Organizations. She has taken on extra responsibility within the department to help us during a period in which we are short-staffed. Thank you! -- Bill Griffel (Purdue Musical Organizations)

Linda Keller

Linda Keller (College of Engineering): Linda is always helpful when I have questions. I’m new at my job. She has always treated me with kindness and respect. -- Rhonda Haan (Global Engineering)

Lisa Cadwallader and Autumn Cummings

Lisa Cadwallader (Purdue Memorial Union Dining) and Autumn Cummings (Purdue Dining & Catering): Thank you very much for all your hard work in presenting the Taste of the Union. You are helping to promote our outlets to the Purdue community. You make great things happen. Thank you for all you do. -- Alan Crabtree (Purdue Dining & Catering)

Meghan Rusk

Meghan Rusk (Office of Financial Affairs): Meghan walked across campus and spent 30 minutes of her time showing me how to use pivot tables in Excel. She saved me hours of manual manipulation. Thank you! -- Jamie Richards (Student Success)

Purdue Grounds

Purdue Grounds: Thank you to Purdue Grounds for their efforts on campus, particularly the University Residences system. They have created some of our beautiful seasonal display, taken great care of our trees, and helped with maintaining our garden beds and lawns. Good job! -- Will Heidbreder (University Residences)

Rhonda Blacklock

Rhonda Blacklock (Purdue Musical Organizations): Rhonda and one of our student workers, Jacob Werst, began cataloging our music library this summer. This massive project is part of a three-library consolidation that culminates more than 60 years of music. This project is so valuable to our department’s ability to recycle and reuse music that we already own. It allows us to truly know what we have in our archives. Rhonda continues to lead this project into the coming year and I can’t thank her enough for her help and leadership! -- Bill Griffel (Purdue Musical Organizations)

Scott Hines and Kris Webster

Scott Hines and Kris Webster (both Purdue Musical Organizations): This incredible team took on a very difficult project of consolidating years of storage while cleaning and cataloging archival items from our department. This was a massive project that helped us save money and preserve our historical artifacts. Thank you so much for your tireless work! -- Bill Griffel (Purdue Musical Organizations)

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Center

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Center: I am very grateful for an entertaining and informative Rainbow Callout. -- David Moore (Honors College)

Tom Coleman and Kari Glebe

Tom Coleman and Kari Glebe (both Purdue Dining & Catering): BGR in the fall brought on a tremendous flow of students to our dining operations. The dining courts, retail locations and catering all worked together to feed the largest incoming freshman class that we have ever had. Tom Coleman and the retail team provided extra opportunities for students to dine at Cosí and The Daily Bite food truck.
