Mike Gaffney

, September 24 | Submitted by Trevor Lane

Mike’s leadership and mentoring has been a huge asset to me. His knowledge of grants, evaluation, the political spectrum, and how to partner on interdisciplinary efforts deserves to be recognized. His ability to coordinate staff in a positive manner that is supportive in complicated situations is also something that makes his leadership noticeable. My hat is off to Mike!

Monica Babine

, September 24 | Submitted by Trevor Lane

Monica’s mentoring and leadership upon my arrival has been greatly appreciated. Her knowledge of the State’s digital initiatives and political spectrum have helped me acclimate in a new State and academic setting. Monica is detail oriented, organized, and quick to lend a hand. People like Monica make this institution a great place!

Maureen Bonnefin

, September 24 | Submitted by Trevor Lane

Maureen is an inspiration in grace with details! Her unyielding devotion to the “devil in the details” with grants, budgets, contracts, navigating the University, and refining research proposals should be hailed from the tallest mountains. As a new professor with Extension and new to the State, Maureen’s support, input, and diplomacy in helping to get research grants across the finish line is more than appreciated and helpful. Her work is meticulous and nothing shy of amazing. I can only hope that CAHNRS administration is aware of her work and style with service to all of us.

Deb Marsh

, September 24, Knowledgeable | Submitted by Brianna Tasker

Deb is one of the hardest working people I know. She does a tremendous job of balancing her many tasks and does each job with great knowledge and thoroughness. On top of that, she is always willing to stop what she is doing and lend a helping hand to myself, Lisa, faculty, staff, or students who may stop by. She has taught me so much, and I love that I work with a team that includes such an incredible person. Gold star!

Daniel Garza-Edge

, September 3, Accountability | Submitted by Kimi

Thank you Daniel for coordinating and successfully executing the Johnson Hall, Food Science and Vogel fire evacuation drills last week. They take a lot of hard work and communication to pull off well. The importance of safety is sometimes lost in the everyday – yet Daniel continues to do what is needed to keep safety first. Great job and much appreciated.
