Tammy Shadair with ducks
Dec. 16, 2009-Tammy Shadair (administrative coordinator for the executive vice president) spent part of her birthday hunting for ducks—27 of her own rubber ducks, to be more precise. The ducks went missing last week, ducknapped by her colleagues. On the day of her birthday, Dec. 15, Tammy was given a series of clues to help her find the ducks, which were relocated to various sites throughout the campus. By the end of a very rainy day of searching, she was soaking wet but happily reunited with every last member of her flock. The hunt was coordinated by Ivette Serna (assistant director for financial affairs) and Ann Nornes (executive legal assistant). Many other co-conspirators across campus were involved.
