Quickly creating a workaround when DDS software would not allow files to be posted.  Your fast solution helped me keep DDS running smoothly and keep patrons happy!

Karen Forbess - Information Compensation HR Coordinator

EVERYTHING, she does to help me on a daily basis. She always has time to walk through a PA or reason out a position request.  Her friendly and cheerful attitude are always appreciated and her sense of humor  is a true asset in our daily work life! She is a skilled professional and I truly enjoy working with her!

Jana Lese - Clerk

Working with a student that was transferred to you after speaking with others. Although it is not your job to help her change her schedule you worked her through the process and reassured her. She had been transfered a number of times and you probably saved this student. Thank you too for staying almost an hour late to help her! Thanks for being student centered!

--- Karen VanGorder

Debi Thorpe - Clerk

Working with a student that was transferred to you after speaking with Jim Beard. Although it is not your job to help her get her license back you worked her through the process, sent her the appropriate forms and reassured her by telling her she could email you back with questions. She had been transfered a number of times and you probably saved this student. Thanks for being student centered!

Joseph Papiernik - Custodian

Thank you Joe for making the extra effort to take care of the "cob webs" in our area and in the stairway outside the entrance to our area.   I appreciate how you always positively and quickly respond.  What you do makes a difference.  It improved our area and the stairway entrance.  Thanks for how you take care of things for us.

Matt Guck - Maintenance Mechanic

On 7/19/16, I asked to borrow a tool from Matt to work on a project. Matt, even though he was working on a different project, volunteered to help me complete my project...eventually performing about 90% of the work himself.
I just wanted to send out a "thank you" to him for going above and beyond. This was GREATLY APPRECIATED.

--- Marc Tulley

Mark Ghaster & Steve Rowley - Grounds Equipment Mechanics

Several times over the last few weeks, I've had to call on these 2 guys to come to my aid when dealing with various problems on vehicles. They continually come over and resolve my issues...almost immediately! Their top notch service (coupled with a great attitude) helps keep me on schedule for my commitments and is appreciated more than they know.
Thanks guys!
