Michael and Wesley,

I wanted to send out a big thank you for helping the Chemistry Department in Hunter Hall. The broken and frayed glass on the fume hood sliding doors is a potential safety issue for students and faculty. Wesley, you have been a champion for getting cost estimates and seeing how this could be replaced over time. We both knew it was going to be expensive to fix but we also knew that was a minor issue compared to peoples safety. We are greatly appreciative to everything you and Michael have done. The Facilities Department has been great to work with and has done a fantastic job of expeditiously fixing and resolving issues while I have been the Building Manager. I appreciate and look forward to working with all of you in the future.

Mr. Smith,

I hope this email finds you well!

I just want to take a minute of your time to express to you our appreciation for all the great work that Brad and Henry did with the repainting of our offices. Their professionalism is beyond compare. They had to touch up more areas than what we had originally requested due to the poor quality done by the contractors that remodeled the suite. They both did an excellent job. It’s not often you find those that care about doing things right, but these two really do take pride in their work. We are very appreciative of a job well done.

Best regards,

From Melinda Fischer

Good morning,

I wanted to reach out to thank you for placing Misty Harrison in Tillman Hall.

My office is on the Ground Floor of Tillman Hall, on the G-04 hall.

Since she has been in this building, Misty has:

  • Brought the level of cleanliness in individual offices up significantly
  • Cleaned the steps and risers in the stairwell
  • Detailed and maintained a high level of sanitation in the bathrooms
  • Was instrumental in getting a faucet in the ladies’ bathroom replaced within 24 hours of malfunction

We are incredibly lucky to have such a dedicated custodian!

I just wanted to let you know what a great job that Mike and Josh did in the two offices with new lights and ceiling tiles. I know it was a messy job but each day they left the offices cleaner than when they started, and with a smile on their face. Both offices look great! Such an improvement. Tell them thanks again!

Thank you,

Facilities Team

From William Daniel

Please share our thanks with those that helped at the Y Barn fire on Friday. The Great Facilities Team you have were extremely helpful and supportive!

Jay Whitmire and his crew his crew kept us supplied with good water pressure, got power off the building as fast as possible, and provided and operated heavy equipment to remove debris for the Investigators. Robin Newberry and his folks got us the Chemical Inventory immediately and began dealing with the ACM issues. Denise with Risk Management was out there with the Insurance Adjuster before the fire was even completely out. Channon and Bill worked through securing the site and many other issues.

It was such a dynamic day and know there were others.

Great groups to work with and hope we do not have to repeat anytime soon but did want to let you know how much we appreciated them!!!!
