Slack retires after 44 years of service
After 44 1/2 years of service, Deana Slack has retired from REC.
Slack started in June of 1975 as an Engineering Aid. She was promoted to Work Order/Payroll Clerk in March of 1988 and in November of 1988 she became the Plant Accountant. In March of 2002, she added Benefits Administrator to her title.
“I have seen many changes in my time here, from doing everything by hand to everything on computers,” Slack said. “All of the changes have been good and has helped REC and the progression of serving our membership.”
Slack was a dedicated and loyal employee who would arrive early and stay until she completed her tasks. Her years of knowledge and experience helped REC thrive and with each new change she adapted and added new responsibilities during her tenure.
While she says she will miss working, she is looking forward to retirement and accomplishing a few projects around her house she has been wanting to do. Slack has a couple of cruises planned, traveling, visiting with friends, spending more time with her husband Mike and their animals and relaxing. Slack will continue to remain active with the Lindsay Elks Lodge and volunteering her time with them.
“I feel lucky to have had a great job and to have worked with great people. I have seen many different faces while working here, and I am truly going to miss seeing everybody and working with them,” she concluded.
