Sending a 'We Are!' to these Penn Staters


As part of our regular "We Are!" feature, we recognize six Penn Staters who have gone above and beyond what's asked of them in their work at the University. Do you know someone who deserves a shout-out? If you do, consider taking a minute to nominate that person by filling out a short online form. This week, we'd like say thank you on behalf of the entire University community to:

  • Bob Darrah and Karen McCulley, staff members at Penn State University Libraries, whose nominator wrote: “Bob and Karen are the heart and soul of the Penn State Libraries Development Team. They always go the extra mile for Library donors, Libraries faculty, staff and students, and Penn State Development efforts. They are the epitome of ‘We Are!’”
  • Mandee Eckert and Terra Saxion, staff members at the Multimedia Print Center, whose nominator wrote: "Mandee and Terra at the Multi-media Print Center are the best! Mandee is quick to respond to requests, she catches mistakes on repeating orders, and she makes recommendations for improvements to layouts or paper choices. She does it all with a wonderfully positive attitude! Terra anticipates my questions, works on jobs quickly when I'm behind schedule, and is incredibly patient when she has to reexplain how to order covers separately from the document body. She is a gem at the MPC!”
  • Debbie Boyle, staff in the College of Engineering, whose nominator wrote: "Debbie was wonderful in helping me through a new-to-me process. She called me on Teams, walked me through the process and gave additional helpful information to use going forward. Without her help, I would probably still be missing a step in the process. True collaboration across business areas!"
  • Adam Breon, staff in the College of Health and Human Development, whose nominator wrote: "Adam goes above and beyond to demonstrate service, responsiveness and commitment when called with any size tech problem. He channels the power of a super hero in his cheerful, prompt and helpful resolutions to our problems every day."

Thank you Bob, Karen, Mandee, Terra, Debbie and Adam — and to everyone who helps make Penn State such an incredible community!
