Thad Gilkey - Electric Shop Lead

28 September 2020
My Hardscape department was paving a project at the corner of Sweet and Blake. Due to a couple of recent resignations we were extremely short handed. Raking and shoveling hot asphalt is extremely physically demanding. Thad stopped by to check on an electrical box that was installed in that area to be paved. When Thad arrived, he grabbed an extra shovel and without asking started leveling the asphalt with the rest of the crew. No questions asked, he just jumped right in. He stayed until it was complete. His help was much appreciate by me and my team. Thanks Thad! - Lewis Paul - Facilities Management - Hardscape/Mechanical Shops Supervisor

Sean Sullivan - Technology Solutions Partner 3

22 September 2020
Sean has a very good rapport with customers, employees and visitors and can smooth the waters with even the most frustrated person. Sean has a can do attitude which helps put people at ease as he works on your issue. Sean's experience and knowledge of campus and of his services helps get answers quickly and efficiently for the customer and those using his departments services. Sean really is a great asset when it comes to the University of Idaho and it is a true joy to work with him. If it was up to me I would be happy to give him a 50% pay increase and a three week paid vacation to anywhere in the world that he wants to go, he deserves it! - Charles Hatfield - Facilities

Payroll Services

10 September 2020
This week is National Payroll Week (September 7-11th). Our office wants to thank our Payroll team for all of their constant hard work, patience and dedication to the University and our family. Their team currently consists of 3 people who make sure that all UI employees (over 5,000 people) get paid correctly and on time. You all are incredible and your hard work never goes unnoticed. Thank you! - Human Resources

Kris Baird-Anderson - Graduation Specialist

2 September 2020
I would like to say "Thank you," to Kris Baird-Anderson. She is literally doing the work of 3 people and still manages to respond to each of my requests and inquiries in a timely manner. She is a dedicated employee who really knows how to put students first. The College of Graduate Studies appreciates her dedication to making the "graduation experience" a positive one for students at the U of I. I don't know what we would do with out her. - Lana Unger - Manager of Graduate Student Services, College of Graduate Studies

Jessica Fleener - Team Cleaning Lead

27 August 2020
We have been unable to purchase anymore OEM refill containers for our automatic sanitizer dispensers within the SRC for months.

Jessica took it upon herself to see if it was possible to refill our old empty containers with a gel sanitizer product which is readily available. It took a couple weeks and multiple tries, but she finally figured out how to dismantle the container, clean it, refill it with the new product and make it work in our auto dispensing units. We've been doing a test run and as of now, the dispensers are all working great.

Her can-do attitude and determination are a model for others to follow. Without her ingenuity, our patrons would be forced to use pump bottles which is less than ideal to say the least. - Helen Brown - Clinical Associate Professor

Brandon Gardner - Technology Solutions Partner 2

26 August 2020
Brandon has offered such excellent, friendly and profressional technology support enabling faculty to quickly gain skills needed for the new hyper-flex teaching mode. I appreciate his sklls and his kind, patient, and caring manner. Thank you, Brandon. - Helen Brown - Clinical Associate Professor

CETL

26 August 2020
CETL has worked so hard over the summer to prepare faculty for teaching this semester. Their posted materials and webinars have been incredibly useful as we try to find ways to teach in a very difficult environment. I've emailed them many times, and they always are quick with a thorough, helpful response. - Ashley Kerr - Assistant Professor of Spanish, MLC

Julia McIlroy - Director, Purchasing Services

18 August 2020
Julia McIlroy and her purchasing team have worked tirelessly this summer to provide PPE for the Moscow campus faculty/staff and students. We so appreciate your efforts and thank you for helping us all stay Vandal Safe. - Twila Brown - Assistant to the Dean

Sumit Shahi - Technology Solution Partner

12 August 2020
Sumit just helped answer a bunch of computer usage questions I had, getting me up to speed on syncing with onedrive, sharepoint, and how to make sure I have all the software updates, which has become super critical in the Covid online work environment. Sumit is always super cheerful, friendly, and competent. In general the EHHS support TS team has always been positive and competent in helping our STEM Access TRIO project. - Sonja Kirsten LaPaglia - Directors, TRIO-INSPIRE

Kathy Duke - Assistant to the Dean - Engineering

27 July 2020
Even though Kathy got a new position at U of I, she still was willing and happy to help with questions pertaining to her previous position. I really appreciate her help, she is awesome! - Mikyla Wood - Management Assistant - COGS

Dan Noble - Employment Services Specialist

27 July 2020
Dan Noble is very patient and helpful and I really appreciate all his help while I am learning how to put EPAF's on the system. I really appreciate his expertise and the fact that he is quick to answer any questions I have while learning. - Mikyla Wood - Management Assistant - COGS

Elise Kokenge - Administrative Specialist, Natural Resources and Society

5 July 2020
Elise always has a positive attitude, no matter what else is happening at the university. When I get in touch with her about an issue and she doesn't know the answer, she is quick to find out and get back to me. She displays empathy for other people's circumstances and places a high priority on accuracy and thoroughness, which shows clearly in the quality of her work. I always smile when my phone rings and it's Elise on the other end of the line. - Amy Kingston - Academic Publications Editor, Registrar's Office
