Chan, Amy (Finance) is Stepping Beyond

“Amy consistently goes the extra mile and steps beyond the minimum to troubleshoot a finance issue, answer questions or walk you through the different functions of the finance systems we use here at SJSU. She follows through until the issue is resolved. Amy is always there for the end users with a friendly, professional attitude!” — Deb Creed

Forbes, Aaron (HVAC) Is Stepping Beyond

“We have been in Clark Hall 500 for over 11 years! There is this one section in the back (north/east) side that is always ‘EXCEPTIONALLY COLD”. The staff would always have to wear jackets and sometimes gloves because it was so cold. Well today, November 10, 2016, I placed a service call to have someone come over and check the temperature because it was so cold. Today was our lucky day. FD&O sent Aaron Forbes who took care of the situation in less than 10 minutes. The staff that sits in this section of the office noticed the difference in the temperature almost immediately. All Aaron did was check the computer, lifted the ceiling panel (which no one else ever did) to check something in the ceiling and checked the circuit board and voila, instant temperature change. The staff is happy! Finally after all these years. The Finance Support Staff would like to recognize a Fellow Spartan Aaron Forbes for taking that extra step to fix a simple problem that took years to make it right!” — Ana Harris

LoBue, Leanne (Student Union) is Stepping Beyond

“Leanne was very helpful in finding a spot for one of our attendees with special needs who attended the CSU Teaching & Learning Symposium. This attendee (from another CSU campus) was very appreciative of the extra effort we made for her and sent us an email in thanks. Also, Leanne helped ensure that everything ran smoothly in the Student Union for our event.” — Gina Marin

Liu, Michelle (Academic Scheduling) is Stepping Beyond

“Michelle was very helpful finding us classrooms to use for the CSU Teaching & Learning Symposium. The event would not have been as successful without the classrooms for breakout sessions and workshops.” — Gina Marin
