–– Nominated by John-Scott Forester, Art Department, April 23, 2013
Neil Markley, Entrepreneurial Activities
Applause Award"The vending machine upstairs in Salazar Hall jammed when I tried to buy a soda with dollar bills. The card reader became disabled and nobody else could use the machine. I felt bad my bill had jammed the machine. I knew better than to use bills in that machine and should have put money on my Seawolf Card. Out of nowhere Neil appeared with the Golden Touch. I was defeated by the machine and Neil stepped up and got the machine to release my dollar bill and it unjammed the machine. It took him a few minutes to troubleshoot and get it to release the dollar bill. You know there are days when you just want a Pepsi and that machine won't give it to you. Thank you Neil for the Pepsi and for unjamming the machine! "
