V. P. Of
ANN LUCILLE PERRY
Ann graduated with honors from
Jefferson High School in June 1959.
A few months later she began work
at White Stag Mfg. Co. where she
worked for about 1-1/2 years.
Leaving White Stag in April, 1961,
she began work as a telephone
operator for the Pacific Northwest
Bell Telephone Co. in Long Dis
tance Unit 6. Recently, she was
chosen “Operator of the Month”
for the month of June. Reigning
as “Operator of the Month” of
June for the entire Portland dis
trict, Ann wears a white head set
instead of the traditional black one
worn by all operators. This honor
is given to an operator each month
for her “ tone of service” (willing
ness to serve); not only for com
pleting a call successfully but for
a sparkle in the voice and eager
ness to serve.
Ann loves her work because
there is much satisfaction in as
sisting customers with long dis
tance and local assistance calls.
She describes her work as in
teresting and wonderful because
there is never a dull moment and
the work enables her to meet
people from all walks of life.
