Happy High Five Friday!

Kelly Kyser of Ohio State Wooster is the relatively new Residence Life Administrative Associate and gets a High Five for quickly getting to know the students and becoming someone they can come to with any issues they want to discuss. The Executive Leadership Team and I are planning to visit the Wooster campus next week, so maybe we will get a chance to see Kelly! 

High Fives to Lisa Wang, Mohammed Baseer, Shivani Edwards, Jon Plante and Helios Yu for their partnership implementing a new electronic medical record keeping system for counselors at all of the regional campuses. 

Chelsea Black, Josh Bensink, Ahmed Hosni and Jennifer Nelson get High Fives for serving on the search committee helping Buckeye Careers recruit and interview candidates for the Assistant Director of Career Development and Experiential Learning. They provided multiple perspectives and provided great input and insights throughout the process, and Buckeye Careers was able to hire a fantastic candidate, Tierra Heath. 

High Five to John Cronin and Drew Foley for going above and beyond to provide a personal touch with a lot of compassion to one of our Buckeye families.

Finally, High Fives to Troy Keller, Larence Washington, Eric Jaburek, Sloane Trusso and Keith Glenn for their quick response to a recent pipe bursting.  Students experienced minimal inconvenience due to their quick actions.

Have a Scarlet and Great weekend!
