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.

I was needed a HDMI adapter for a class I was teaching today.  Jeff had one and donated it for our departmental use! He got it to me right away!

Lana is a wonderful colleague who is always willing to drop what she is doing to help others.  I regularly reach out to Lana for help with difficult questions, and without fail she provides a thorough and timely reply.  EIU graduate coordinators and graduate students are so lucky to have someone as intelligent and dedicated as Lana to rely on for answering questions and fixing problems.

Teresa is always pleasant, helpful and professional.

(and many days we see her towards the end of her 4am shift)

Teresa is great at keeping our building clean and the restrooms stocked up.

We know it's not easy because the team she's on takes care of about 11 buildings!!

Nate is always so easy to work with, never seems to mind helping point me in the right direction. He entertains me while I put it all together and is just so friendly! Nate doesn't just tell me what to do, he provides excellent examples so I can work through it and learn hands-on so it sticks. Super quick to hop on a screen share, he usually gets me over a bump and on my way in a flash!

Thanks for everything, Nate!

I am shouting out Dawn Zachow for being readily available to assist with questions and troubleshooting around the technical aspects of the preventing harassment and discrimination annual training.  She was patient in her responses, walked through situations and responded in a timely manner.  Thank you for all of your assistance!  You are awesome!

This shout out is for Tara and the WHOLE IT team that help the HERC save so much time with our new tracking system for our required courses! Dawn, Connor, Tara, and whoever else had a hand in it - thank you so much! You're the best and all great teachers when it comes to stuff that isn't necessarily my strong suit!
