This Week's RIPPLES Recipients

Tina Webber- Business Manager

Dear Tina, I appreciate ALL your help answering all my questions, helping me with managing my Department's budget, setting up student assistant's accounts, and many more instances. Thank you! Also, I thank you because you went out of your way to provide me with the latest data about Econ. Dept. budget so I have the information to discuss at my Dept. meeting.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

---Hedayeh Samavati

Jana Lese- Clerk

A student was directed to our office to find his lost laptop. However, no one had turned his laptop into our office.  Instead of sending him to another office, Jana stayed with the student and helped him hunt down the laptop.  This is the level of service we should all be providing our students!

---Angie Williams

myBLUEprint and more! Karolyn has helped me since I started at IPFW.  She compiled an amazing, organized desk procedure book when she was in CS that I received when I started. Then, she rescued me, over and over, in her position in Admissions.  And now, we get to work closely to keep students up-to-date in myBLUEprint. She is great about sharing cudos, but I'd really like to recognize her work.

My thanks and appreciation to you and your staff for going above and beyond with a cleaning request.  The request required efforts above what is normal and traditional and you and your staff responded with a desire to make the situation better.

Janice Mitchell- Account Clerk

Thank you for being diligent and following through on a payroll document that we needed.  With the myriad of things you have to do during crunch time, your efforts in seeking out the form was just one of the many ways you reflect your passion for ensuring that what is needed for our employees, departments, and the university are met.  My thanks and appreciation for your extra effort.
