A round of Applause! for Melissa Kaplan and Patrick Butcher

This week, we’re applauding Patrick Butcher of Media Services.

“Patrick devoted almost an hour to help me better understand how to maximize my use of Webex so the Healthy Conversations would go smoothly,” Sarah Velez wrote in the award. “We had a great meeting and he walked me through several permissions and settings. Then, when it was time for the meeting, he attended the session just to be extra supportive. He is so busy right now, with everything running remotely, and his time was very valuable. Thank you, Patrick!”

Applause also goes to Melissa Kaplan of Business, Communication and the Arts.

“Recently, an HHS faculty was looking for a poem to share at a virtual family holiday gathering,” Susan McEwan wrote in the award. “Her request reached Melissa, who took the time to research meaningful readings and respond with kindness during these challenging times. Melissa’s example of reaching out across disciplines to her fellow LCC colleague is an inspiration to us all in helping each other in small but important ways.”
