<Donna Wallis, a buyer in Purchasing, helped a university department secure a software licensing agreement after years of prior work on the agreement had failed.>
"Our department had been trying to purchase very critical software needed for our senior-level students for almost two years," said nominator Becky Asher, Department of Chemical Engineering. "We were very frustrated with the lack of customer service from the [software] company.
"This problem became Donna's at the first of this year. Donna jumped right in to get this taken care of," Asher continued.
After much work, the licensing agreement was signed this summer and the software was ready for the fall semester.
"I am not sure this would be possible without Donna's above-and-beyond-the-call-of-duty attitude," Asher said.
Wallis has been with the university since April 2009.
