Perez, Phil (Distribution Services) is Stepping Beyond

“Special delivery arrangements had to be made for a shipment of artificial turf that was going to Athletics. At 15 feet long, the 7 rolls were too long to be delivered to Distribution Services. Phil tapped into his knowledge from a previous job to help determine the best way to off-load the rolls of turf. However, the equipment we had didn’t work out, and Phil helped devise a new plan by using the equipment we had in a different way. It took more than an hour to get the rolls unloaded, but it was accomplished through maximum Spartan effort!” — Sonja Bowsky

Koh, Derrick (Testing) is Stepping Beyond

“We had a shortage of staff to review the status of the remedial freshman at the end of Fall 2016. Derrick volunteered to help. He looked up records for many of the students, determined their placement, and messaged them multiple times about which classes to take. Derrick’s detailed work was essential to ensuring that this large cohort of students were enrolled in the right classes for Spring 2017. Thank you Derrick.” — Thalia Anagnos

Garcia, Marie (Human Resources) is Stepping Beyond

“Marie helped me maneuver through the red tape to resolve some issues, answer some questions and determine that I had been provided with incorrect information. She saved me a tremendous amount of time and frustration and got me my answers in a matter of minutes instead of days. She is always professional, very knowledgeable, and performs to her commitments. I am extremely impressed with the level of customer service that she provided at a point when I really needed assistance with these matters. Thank you again Marie!” — Valorie Gale
