SHOUT OUTS!

Welcome to the Eastern Illinois University Shout Out Page. Staff Senate initiated this page to support and boost the morale of all EIU employees and promote a positive campus spirit. “Shout Outs” are a public recognition of thanks or appreciation. We want to give recognition to the great works done by many individuals, departments, and others, on a day-to-day basis.

We encourage you to use the Shout Out submission form to acknowledge and recognize a fellow employee. To create a Shout Out, please click on the ‘Make a Shout Out’ tab and log in using your Net Id and Password. Once the Shout Out form is submitted, a moderator will review and then proudly display your submission on the Shout Out page. Random submissions will also be posted on social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

This page was created in memory of UPD officer Harold Harris.

Phil's knowledge and expertise in all things Microsoft has been a lifesaver on many occasions and I am so thankful to have him as part of the EIU team. His solutions to some crazy problems are always well thought out and fix the issue in an efficient and cheerful way. Thanks for all your help Phil!

I try to not dump projects on people whenever I can avoid it, but Mindy has consistently taken on issues that were outside of my wheelhouse and has done so with a great attitude of service. I always know that whenever I do have to hand something over to Mindy that it will be taken care of in the best way possible!

To Mary Mattingly on Jun 17, 2020 #

Booth Library will like to give a very LOUD shoutout to Mary Mattingly in the Research and Sponsored Programs office. Mary is awesome to work with and is very patient with us as we gather information to apply for grants. She's always willing to answer any question and get us the information we need. Most recently, she went the extra mile to help us complete a grant application and submit it by the deadline in less than two days. We couldn't do it without you, Mary! Thank you!

A big thank you for deep cleaning and sanitizing Coleman Hall and keeping the building clean on a daily basis. You have outdone yourself. You went through every classroom completely sanitizing each and you continuously sanitize every room, office, hallway, doorknob, etc. You even deep cleaned carpets that have looked disgusting for years and you deep cleaned classroom chairs that seemed to be beyond help. You carefully cleaned each fabric chair in one of the computer labs. Now, those chairs look almost as good as they did the day they arrived several years ago. You are doing an awesome job and Coleman Hall occupants truly appreciate you. Thank you for all of your efforts and, especially, for your hard work and commitment to EIU.

Brad went way out of his way for me this afternoon. He agreed to meet a faculty member after hours, on campus, to secure a time sensitive document for overnight mailing. He was so calm and willing to help, he made a huge difference today for both the faculty member and the respective student. Thank you, Brad!
