"Caught Ya!"

When an international student was in a bind (stuck at the airport with no documentation), Patti Noble came to the rescue and helped the student. Going beyond the call of duty is something Patti quietly does each day.

I spent some time In the Social Science Building this summer, and I couldn’t believe how often Ralph Brenchley was there. (It was summer time, and he is “retired.”) He worked on the World War II displays nearly every day, and it took a lot of time. His son (Mike Brenchley) and the electrician (Dick James) also did a lot of work. The cases look nice, and I appreciate their efforts.

(Please send a quick note to Marci to recognize your peers. We want to let others know of the many good things our employees do each day. Thanks so much!)
