Nguyen, An H (Computing Services) is Stepping Beyond

“An Nguyen was outstanding in the setup and implementation of REDCap software. He took charge of getting the VM’s and installing various packages needed to make the REDCap software operational (this included PHP, email, software installation and configuration and various related tasks). We did run into a few road blocks but An was instrumental in working with me to find the appropriate solutions to resolve the issues. An was awesome and the implementation of REDCap software would not have been possible without An. I appreciate his knowledge, dedication and hard work. Thank you An!” –Harish Chander

Wood, Darcel (Office of the Registrar) is Stepping Beyond

“Darcel has been a superstar who is always willing to go above and beyond to help me and students. I really appreciate how easygoing she is. I often reach out to her in a moment of panic and she calmly assists me and never leaves me feeling like I am bothering her.  I want to recognize how great of a colleague she is and how much she is valued for the great work she does.” — Anthony Bettencourt

Hoekwater, Jordan (Student) is Stepping Beyond

“Jordan was amazing. I was running a campus wide committee meeting with consultants that were coming in from out of town. We had about 40 people in the room. At about 10 minutes prior to the start of the meeting, the consultant wanted to ‘zoom’ in another consultant that would need to be able to hear everyone in the room and talk back through the PA system in the room. This would include hooking up multiple laptop computers to the LCD projector and also using audio in and out cables and amplifiers fore and aft. When we asked Jordan this, he stood silently for about 20 seconds and said ‘we can do it’. In a whirlwind he was in and out of the room, enlisting other AV staff members to set the room up with approximately 6 mics and hook ups on 2 laptops. It was amazing. He got the whole setup done in less than 6 minutes. We started on time. Jordan went above and beyond for sure and our meeting could not have happened without his quick thinking and quicker setup prowess. Thank you Jordan …actually, I should say ‘sorry’ for foisting this info on you at the last minute, and thank you for ‘rolling’ with it. Peace.” — Craig John Alimo, Ph.D.
