Shout-Out to Linda Carlyon | Faculty - Nursing

"I came to her office unannounced on Tuesday late afternoon during the Cool Spaces Tour on Pathways Day and she stopped what she was doing and gave us all an excellent tour of the Nursing Labs. The students loved it, and we were all talking about how cool all the stuff in the re-created hospital ward is! (the pregnant manneqin--what?!)

She did it on the spur of the moment, and it was wonderful!"

Shout-Out to Dawn Fiedler | General Maintenance Worker

"I wish I could choose "All of the above" for the reason for the shoutout. I spilled some liquid in my office yesterday. I mentioned it to Dawn and I tried to clean it up right after it happened. Dawn cleaned up my carpet after I left the building and it looks great this AM! Thanks, Dawn for being flexible and making time to keep my carpet free of stains!"

Shout-Out to ShaRon Carter | Transfer Specialist

"Appreciated your willingness and efficiency in helping a student move forward through the enrollment process with one phone call. I felt like we were working together as part of a true Student Affairs team. Many thanks."

Shout-Out to Faith Phang | Central Services Specialist

"From the day she started here, Faith has been making copies and taking care of other printing, shipping/receiving, and related needs with extraordinary speed and attention to detail. I appreciate her quickness, but also her care. She has caught several small errors in docs that I sent (like my spacing made something run over my intended page number), and let me know before she made the copies. Our lab manuals she printed look beautiful and I'm proud for our students to get them from the bookstore. Thank you--your reliability and capability are noticed."

"Darryl is always working hard to make this campus beautiful."

Shout-Out to Heidie Lish | Interim Dean - The School of Liberal Arts and Academic Foundations

"I want to give a shout-out to our new interim dean, Heidie Lish, who, with a blend of vulnerability, grace, and humor, managed to lead the best meeting I’ve been to in years,  topping  it off by singing a solo and then encouraging us to join her(which we did). 

I told Heide if she sends me the chords, I'll accompany her next time on the ukulele.

In the meantime, great start to your new position, Heidie."

Shout-Out to IT Department Staff 

"I want to take a moment to acknowledge and give a resounding shout-out to our exceptional colleagues who have been instrumental in transforming the onboarding experience for our new academic deans – the IT Department Staff!

Beyond their technical prowess, the IT Department consistently demonstrates genuine kindness and willingness to foster a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for our new academic leaders. Even before the 1st day each of our new deans stepped onto campus, the IT Department's unwavering commitment and technical expertise were nothing short of awe-inspiring. Their contributions do not go unnoticed, and their impact extends far beyond the onboarding process.

On behalf of the entire academic community, I extend my sincerest gratitude and admiration for the exceptional work that you all have done and continue to do. You all have truly made a difference in the lives of our academic deans and the success of our institution.

We are incredibly fortunate to have you all as part of our team, thank you for being the technology gurus we all admire and respect!"

She also works closely with the Tutoring Coordinator, inspiring and elevating the peer tutors. She has a knack for focusing in and seeing projects through (even the tough ones.) She works with other to offer workshops, brought North Start Literacy to campus on a wider scale, and is currently collaborating with the Tutoring Coordinator to offer a certificate to all peer tutors which will allow them to serve their peers at the highest level along with add to their resumes. Cheyenne is the ultimate actively engaged collaborator!"
