Jenny Acevedo-Barga, Judah Altaras, Ryan Grant and Ryan Hagg, Information Management

MAJOR kudos to Jenny, Judah, Ryan G and Ryan H for their most excellent work on More Purple. The microsite was beautiful, the ticker was so much fun to watch, and they busted out an entirely new capability to track individual school’s matching challenges. Beyond that, Jenny went above and beyond helping finalize the More Purple logo, create graphics, facebook cover photos and avatars. You all are so fantastic to work with, we can’t thank you enough!

-Betsy Hauenstein & Ande Peterson, Annual Giving

Napha Nammathao, Alumni & Constituent Relations

I want to thank you Napha for support with the DAVA selection committee meeting.  From the use of your pro-card..to the set-up of Dave Stone’s computer and walking to the loading dock to meet our lunch order.  You seem to get it all done. I’m grateful to have you as my co-worker!

Ellen Sweeney-Clawson, Alumni & Constituent Relations

Louis Tam, Information Management

Kudos and thanks, Louis, for assisting Gift Processing on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.  We were having problems with the production printer repeatedly jamming.  You saved the day through effective troubleshooting, cleaning, repair, and generally going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the printer was fixed and up and running before the next day’s receipts job ran.

-Nancy Gwin, Gift Processing
