URHR Kudos

Sabrina Anderson, Education

Kudos to Sabrina Anderson, Academic Administrative Assistant, for helping with the transition of coverage in the CMC Ed. Department this summer! With the retirement of the part-time CMC staff member, Sabrina stepped in and covered the hours needed to keep the Center open. Her willingness to help is greatly appreciated by the students, faculty and staff who use the center. - Submitted by Liza Carpenter in Humanities/Education

Darius Pulliam, Facilities

Pat Coleman, Arts and Sciences, and I want to give Darius Pulliam a big shout out for his excellent job painting our office, B100, in Gottwald off the Atrium. Our office also happens to be the Biology and Chemistry faculty office . Darius is super professional, quiet, efficient, polite, open to suggestions and overall did an amazing job. He finished painting in 3 days over spring break, and never interrupted our work schedule, either coming in before we arrived or working while we were at lunch. He also put all the furniture back in place and left it super tidy. We hardly knew he was here. We are thrilled with how bright our office now feels, and all faculty and staff here in Gottwald have noticed. Pat and I wanted to personally thank Darius on a job more than well done! - Submitted by Emily Phaup in Biology

Amanda Salazar, Grants Accounting

Our excellent Director of Grants Accounting, Tammy Hicks, has assembled a truly competent and caring staff. This past year, I have had the pleasure of working with and relying on one of her super staffers, Amanda Salazar. She possesses a positive attitude and extreme kindness. Amanda is knowledgeable, capable, and highly communicative, such as when she recently took the time to clarify the often complex approval process in Chrome River. There were several back and forth emails and phone calls, and her replies were always timely and without a trace of condescension. Amanda is simply a fine example of the kind of elite employees that my department, Psychology, has the honor of working with here at UR. THANK YOU, Amanda! - Submitted by Karyn Kuhn in Psychology
