She collaborated with IS and supported me in this task which made it possible to complete the project well before the deadline.

Julian Kline, Facilities

I'd like to give Julian a kudos for his hard work during our plumbing shutdown this summer. He was in at 6 am every morning and was working 5 ten hour days to make sure we stayed ahead of the schedule. While it was the two of us on shutdown, he was hard at it while I was in meetings or meeting contractors for other projects on campus. Other trades also noticed his efforts and had made comments to Frank and myself. Also he completed four years of plumbing school and will soon be a carded plumber at the university. Thanks for the extra effort Julian!!  - Submitted by Scott McIntosh in Facilities

Lana Larsen, ECSS

Kudos to Lana Larsen in Events & Support Services. Lana is incredibly knowledgeable and always helps when I have questions about reserving spaces, finding information, and best practices. She has impeccable attention to detail and if she notices something out of the ordinary she checks in. Thank you for all you do! - Submitted by Emily Peebles in Religious Studies
