Applause Awards

Leo Alvillar, Common Management Systems

"Leo Alvillar has gone above and beyond the call of duty in getting the Degree Audit system up and running. Working almost single handedly he has worked with all the academic departments in building their programs and then working on entering the date and the subplans. Without his dedication this project would never have been completed and he has done all this with tact, humor and a truly professional demeanor. We on the Degree Audit Task Force appreciate his leadership and honor his commitment."

— Nominated by Dean Elaine Leeder for the Degree Audit Task Force

Talmadge Savage, University Dining Services

"I would like to applaud Talmadge Savage and his entire dining staff for the incredible job they did on the breakfast that the Facilities staff attended. Talmadge and crew went out of their way, opening up at 6:30 a.m. so all could attend before work. The food was fantastic and all that attended were very pleased. Thanks again for a helping to put a smile on many faces."

— Nominated by Pat Seda, Facilities Management

John Gleazer, Information Technology

"Kudos to John Gleazer of the AIS team in Information Technology. After each graduation, we transfer graduate data from PeopleSoft to the alumni database. This has been a long and intensely manual process. We asked John if he could streamline it. He took on this project with gusto and worked with us to cut the time (and errors) from four days to four hours! Working with John was great. When we had a change to make, he usually responded within a day and it worked."

— Nominated by Paul Greenblatt, the Development team and the Alumni Office
