After combined 80-Years, Two Long-time Staff Members Retire
|After more than 80 years of combined service, |
Paulette Myers, left, and Teresa Patterson are retiring.
Teresa started work as part-time, non-contract in the college registration office when she was 16, working through her junior and senior year at South Albany High School. Back then, the Registration office was in the Calapooia Center, where Human Resources is today.
After graduating high school, Teresa was offered a full-time position in Registration, a job she held for 20 years before moving into her current position as IT Specialist with Information Services. Some of her coworkers call her the “Banner Queen,” since she was part of the original team that helped bring Banner online. Teresa’s last day was May 31, but she will continue to work part-time non-contracted (coming full-circle) through the end of this year.
Paulette came to LBCC after graduating from Albany High School (now West Albany) in 1972. She spent a year taking secretarial courses, and then landed a job with the Health Occupations program, working as support staff for the nursing program for 26 years.
For the past 17 years, Paulette has served as the Foundation coordinator. She officially retired from full-time contracted work in 2011, and has continued to work in a part-time, non-contracted capacity. Her last official day will be July 13.
