Thank you to Sue Hamann, Dispatcher Extraordinaire for the Campus Services Department. Sue has established herself as more then just a Dispatcher in her time with Campus Services. Everyone knows that if you can’t reach Brad or Ross then just call Sue and she will get the answer or help that you need. She is a joy to work with and an outstanding Representative of Campus Services to the multitude of Physical Plant Staff and external customers that call her everyday.

Jeff Zander

A very special thanks goes out to Plant Electrician, Jeff Zander, who possessed the knowledge and skill to diagnose a problem with 2 obsolete control boards and performed the necessary repairs to get them back into service on our Walnut Street Heating Plant Boilers. Without his actions, the Charter Heating Plant shutdown would have been impossible

Charter Street Heating Plant staff

During the week of October 23rd, the Charter Street Heating Plant shut down for Equipment upgrades and repairs. This plant has not been offline in over a decade. This required intense planning and quick thinking to overcome the unpredicted challenges that occurred. The hard work by the Operations team made the transition offline and the plant restart a success. The hard work from the Plant Maintenance team : DCS Team-EJ Walter, Mick Badgett, Steamfitters-Rob Hodel, Jared Kuecker, Maintenance Staff- Jeff Ennis, Harry Studebaker, Shane Sundby, and Electrician- Jeff Zander, Joe Westover made smooth work of the Controls upgrades and Valve replacements throughout the Plant.
