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:

Chad Sailors

Chad Sailors (Materials Management and Distribution): I want to thank Chad Sailors for his normally courteous service when he comes twice daily to Krannert to deliver/pick up mail. Today, at the last minute, we had 35 shoebox-size packages, plus a stack of large envelopes, brought to our dock after Chad's normal afternoon visit. He responded to our call and added this extra load to his afternoon mail run by coming back for a third time. The boxes and envelopes did not need to sit in our dock area overnight because of his extra visit. Thanks, Chad! -- Tom Brown (Krannert School of Management)

James Snow

James Snow (Cary Quadrangle): James has been a real go-getter. Going above and beyond. Always ready to jump in and assist Cary maintenance staff. Thanks, James! -- Tom Gilbert (Cary Quadrangle)

Korena Vawter

Korena Vawter (Business Office Student Life): Korena welcomed me to my new position in PMU with a cheerful disposition and great sense of humor. She has been a wonderful source of information since I arrived and is a very effective trainer. She has made this transition not only easier but pleasant as well. Thank you, Korena, for all you do on a daily basis, not just for me, but for the PMU as well! You are a gem! -- Makeba Washington (Student Activities, Organizations and PMU)

Tom Johnson

Tom Johnson (IT Customer Relations and Process Management): Many thanks to Tom Johnson for the late hours to resolve an Adobe Premiere software issue on the lab computers. The fix means a lot to the undergraduates enrolled in this new course. -- Kevin Leigh Smith (Agricultural Communication Service)

Tuhin Subhra Dey

Tuhin Subhra Dey (IT Teaching and Learning Technologies): I'd like to thank Tuhin Subhra Dey for an amazing job done with my SPAN 424 online class. He is always ready to help and is an invaluable member of the Digital Education team. My online class wouldn't be the success it is without his knowledge and expertise. -- Blanca Morales (School of Languages and Cultures)
