On Wednesday, August 31st, 2022, the department held its annual "Introductory Tea" where we all come together to support one another and welcome any newcomers to the physics family. This year we had some outstanding milestones, and we took the time to recognize a staff member who has demonstrated unrelenting dedication to the department and to IU Bloomington for many years.
On this day the Physics Department recognized, Susan Brown (pictured left), for her valued service and outstanding dedication to the department over the course of several trying years. We appreciate all your hard work, as well as the grace and calm with which you do it!
During this presentation led by our department chair, David Baxter, we also took time to recognize and congratulate milestones of our staff members who have dedicated years of service to our team and the university. They are as follows:
Curtis Bitner our Demonstration Coordinator with a milestone of 5 years
Nelson Batalon our Student Services Administrator with a milestone of 10 years
Gary Wood our Senior Research Machinist with a milestone of 15 years
David Sprinkle our Building Manager with a milestone of 45 years
and Mike Hosek our Condensed Matter, Instrumentation Engineer with a milestone of 50 years!
Thank you all for your continued service and support for the department and welcome again to any newcomers for the year 2022!
