Langerman, Lisa M

I asked Lisa if she had a particular item in the surplus inventory and she did not. However, she went above and beyond to locate the item on campus, kept in touch as to when she would be getting it and delivered it personally. Now that's what I call going "above and beyond"! Thank you, Lisa.

When I think about Parkside, I think of students and their success. You support students and encourage students every day, in all you do. You lift their spirits, and provide fun and engaging activities for students to be involved in. You let them decompress from their studies, and remind them to have fun while going through the college process. Thank you for being the kind, creative, vibrant, caring, and an involved person that you are for our campus! You make such a huge difference!
