Lein Shorys nomination

Seth Lammers is always busy, always working on something, but I’ve never known him to not be helpful and friendly and more often than not find a solution to a problem, going above and beyond to research and/or thinking outside the box if needed. Not only do I know this to be true for me, but I see a steady daily stream of people coming by my office and into Seth’s seeking his help. He understands COE priorities but he also treats every individual with the same courtesy and respect. Not only is he invaluable as a colleague but he’s just a great guy to be around. A shout to his staff too.
