Pride of Indiana: Thank-you messages
Pride of Indiana is a regular feature in IU Today where Indiana University faculty and staff can recognize their colleagues for IU-related work they’ve done that goes above and beyond their job duties or responsibilities.
Submit a Pride of Indiana shout-out for a colleague who makes a difference in your department.
Clinton McKay, of the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, whose nominator wrote: “On behalf of the IU Center of Excellence for Women & Technology, I’d like to thank Clinton McKay for consistently providing outstanding customer support. He has been integral to our website and e-badge implementation and an invaluable resource for me personally. I am grateful for the many WCMS and framework tips and tricks I’ve learned from him!”
Brad Marsh, of the Kelley School of Business, whose nominator wrote: “Brad has been steadfast in his work to implement Salesforce and Marketing Cloud for the Kelley academic programs at IUPUI. I applaud his determination and resiliency, especially in the face of challenging issues and problems. It’s never easy to take on a new role and to move to a new team — of which Brad has done both in the past year — but Brad has embraced change and made it work for our team and the school. Hats off to Brad!”
Mary Price, of the Center for Service and Learning, whose nominator wrote: “I have known Dr. Mary Price for many years and am impressed by the incredible work she does around culturally responsive coaching and mentoring. It is a labor of love for her, one that extends far beyond her responsibilities in the IUPUI Institute for Engaged Learning. Mary offers professional coaching to faculty, staff and graduate students to support their professional growth and career advancement. She has presented and published on this work. She has voluntarily stepped up to help bolster and advance our rich culture of mentorship on campus by advocating for the creation of the IUPUI Coaching and Mentoring Coalition and now co-chairs the group’s efforts. She also willingly stepped up to help design and launch the Leading and Inspiring Faculty Together Mentoring Circles Program, which groups faculty members with similar challenges and aspirations to share, guide and learn from one another. What a superstar!”
IU Fort Wayne
Jennifer Siefers, of Academic Support, whose nominator wrote: “I would like to thank Jennifer Siefers, IU Fort Wayne Academic Support, for her hard work and assistance on Academic Advising Reports and graduation verifications. She is always willing to help us no matter the time crunch we put her under. Thank you!”
Krista Grant, of Fiscal Affairs, whose nominator wrote: “Krista has been with the Northwest campus for only a few years but has established a reputation as an extremely competent, efficient and congenial person to work with. Krista is usually the first person I go to when I have any kind of fiscal question from Buy.IU and Chrome River to budget construction, IUIE reports that help illuminate account transactions and higher-level perspectives on departmental, college and campus revenue and expenses activity. Krista pays attention to the details but also understands the bigger picture. She is a gem to work with, and it’s my opinion that her knowledge contributes greatly to the fiscal integrity and efficiency of the entire campus. Thanks for all of your service, Krista!”
