GEM Card Winners

GEM Card Winners:    Congratulations to everyone and thank you for “Going the Extra Mile”. 

July 2015 winners

Darren Cleveland  from Jeff Weddle:  “Thank you for volunteering your time to assist with Beaker Go-Live, it was a long hard week but we pulled together as team and impressed the organization with the skill, dedication and professionalism of information services.”

Natalie Weekly  from Hanna Cheng:   “Thank you Natalie for successfully managed the TMDSAS project! The project is complex and involves specification changes from third party (TMDSAS) and even fourth party (AAMS) this year. Plus I am the new developer for the project. You have managed the project effectively by starting from the technical knowledge transfer sessions, the meetings with functional users discussing our specification changes according to the TMDSAS and AAMS changes, and the weekly or bi-weekly follow up meetings with technical and functional users. Since AAMS cannot provide new MCAT live data until mid or late June, but our School of Medicine users need to start processing new applications as early as possible, you have provided users with different options and listed the risks of each option. This helped the functional users to make final decision on when to move our implementations for Entry Year 2016 into production. And your effort did not stop where the implementation went live. You are still coordinating the project for the post go-live activities. It is the great team work makes the project a success. We are very lucky to have you on our team! Thank you so much Natalie for your hard work and I am looking forward to working with you again for more projects.”
