Linda Tomlin Celebrates 55 Years of Service

The Corner 1997Linda is the type of person who doesn’t like a lot of attention, but we want to celebrate this important milestone. She came to the University in 1966 for a part-time position in the Law School, located in Clark Hall. After a month she transferred to HR, upstairs in a building near the bridge on 14th Street. HR sent Linda for an interview in Accounts Payable in Garrett Hall. In January of 1989 she transferred to the Surgery Department Accounting Office and has been there since. Linda comments, “I have worked with many nice people and supervisors…seen a lot of changes over the years. The years have gone by really fast for me. I think you come to a job and you think that you won’t be at that job long  and move on to something else but it just worked out for me here. I have enjoyed working at the University. When I worked in Garrett Hall us girls would walk down to the University Cafeteria  on University Avenue and have lunch. The food was wonderful and we would have such a great time.”

Thanks, Linda, for your contributions to the School of Medicine!
