Pat on the Back Awards April 2006

Congratulations to —

Barb Spedowski, secretary, Residential Life. She is quick, efficient, answers all emails, phone calls, gets the job done! She puts time, thought and caring into her work. She does more than just come to work to get a paycheck. She truly cares about the students.

Rex Wiseman, electrician, for Granger Center, because anytime the lights go out, Rex doesn't make us wait in the dark for long. He is very prompt at completing the electrical work orders that we send in. We really appreciate the fact that we can depend on him. :) Rex--You Rock!!

Larry Schult, Gary Gawne, Greg Vodry, Brian Anderson, Denise Wild and Dan Sims. Over the spring break the rain and melting ice resulted in water leaks in the National Elastomer Center roof. The water was dripping on molds in the lab area that would have easily damaged them if not for the quick thinking of this group of people. They quickly covered the area with plastic and notified key individuals. Their quick thinking and efforts minimized any damage.

Congratulations to team members from Marketing and Communications and Admissions who contributed to the work that yielded a gold award for Ferris State University's search piece and a merit award for overall recruitment package in the annual Admissions Advertising Awards competition entered by public and private colleges and universities nationwide. All the materials were produced in-house compared to a number of other winning materials that were created by an agency. The Marketing and Communications staff will receive a certificate acknowledging their contributions to the field of admissions marketing and advertising. Special thanks go to Susan Starkey, assistant director of Marketing Communications; Al Williams, senior graphic designer; Michelle Herron, communications specialist; photographers Bill Bitzinger and Matt Yeoman; Craig Westman, director of Admissions; and Penny Bouman, manager of enrollment publications and communications.

Brophy/McNerney staff and residents for there awesome pride and support of others in the Ferris Community. The Brophy/McNerney staff recently held a Pie your RA where they raised over $700 dollars. These funds are being donated to Kristina Davis, Residential Life custodian from Carlisle who has recently gone through a transplant due to Leukemia. The Brophy/McNerney staff/residents continue to support others in the community and really show their care and concern and always come through! It is so awesome to see this kind of community development and I really think it needs to be recognized.
