From Tara Kreider: Matt Hill and Kaelyn McAdams went above and beyond to ensure Tasteful Evening was a successful event. Kaelyn did everything leading up to and at the event to ensured everything was efficiently handled for the Rare Books department. Matt did an outstanding job taking care of all the day-of tasks and crises, especially considering it was his third day on the job! Thank you both for being great partners and for all your hard work.
From Tina Franks: Kudos to Elaine Pritchard! As Faculty Secretary, I often call upon Elaine for assistance. I appreciate her speedy email response time and her ability to fit in my requests with all the other responsibilities she juggles. Whether it’s updating listserv rosters, arranging and changing meeting times, or coordinating food/drink details, she can always be counted on to quickly complete tasks. She proactively asks for feedback to ensure things are working properly and offered an improvement for scheduling future faculty meetings. She’s genuinely interested in how she can contribute to other people’s work and the result is that my own work has benefited by having a trusted colleague to work alongside.
From Ann Marie Davis: Sarah Witherspoon tirelessly and graciously supported Japanese Studies collection development as we acquired a number of rare materials through online auctions and foreign vendors. She processed a huge number of complicated receipts during an incredibly busy time. Thank you for being so efficient, supportive, and professional with our many last minute requests.
