Leading the Way
On Wednesday, Nov. 20, Purdue University Libraries and School of Information Studies (PULSIS) United Way team members — who led fundraising in our unit for the Purdue United Way’s 2019 campaign — were recognized for their contributions to the campaign. This year, this team — comprised of (L to R) Ashley Hutchcraft, Mary Sego, Dan Rotello and Teresa Balser (both in back row), Sandy Galloway, and Angie Ewing — led PULSIS in raising more than $13,000 — $1,700+ more than the unit’s goal of $11,865! The team also collected more than 250 books for Read to Succeed. In addition, at the campaign celebration luncheon, the team was recognized for leading the PULSIS in the highest participation rate of all mid-size units on campus.
