Very Important Ponies
of our VIPs this month are:
Stephen Forrest - created the queries that I needed to gather information on the AMS Payment Plan.
Jennifer Russell - was absolutely wonderful in assisting several out-of-state students who arrived after hours for Mustang Days. She made special arrangements so these students could get in touch with their hosts for the weekend.
Ernie Calderon - stepped in and assisted a new employee in my area while I was on the line with another student. The new employee had a very upset student and Ernie was able to help to get his account settled.
Mike Novak - while in the office in the evening before Mustang Days, took the time to help several students find their overnight hosts.
Delaine Ringel - worked hard to complete her work with the Credit Balance Report and then volunteered to help other staff members with their part.
Catherine Hadnot - I was on the telephone helping someone with the navigation to a screen in PeopleSoft, Catherine overheard that I was giving the navigation incorrectly. She said she didn't mean to listen but that the correct navigation is . . . and she gave it to me. She helped me by making sure that the information I was giving to a customer was correct.
Dewayne Espinosa - I contacted Dewayne about a lost refund check. He kept me informed of every step for replacing the check so that I could explain it to the student.
Rose Johnson - I am extremely grateful that Rose did the pre-audit check before the VA Auditors came. She came in early to run the check which found several items that we were able to fix before the audit.
