Harriet Tillery recently retired from Mail Services after more than 21 years with East Carolina University. She was a mail clerk on the main campus.
“We will miss her presence in Mail Services, for she was a woman of many great skills and even greater character attributes,” Thomas Hardy, Mail Services manager, said. “She ran the metering machine, she ran the mail routes, and she ran back and forth from bin to bin sorting mail. She was a master sorter and knew nearly all the routes.”
Tillery began her career at ECU in 1992 in the Housekeeping Department, then worked her way up to supervisor of her work unit. She joined Mail Services in 1997 as a route driver. Her duties included delivering mail to academic departments, sorting mail and working the customer service window.
In 2004, she received the Business Services First Mate Award in recognition of her team spirit, helpfulness to others and enthusiastic attitude. In nominating Tillery, her supervisor wrote, “Harriet always emphasizes to the rest of the staff the importance of working together as a team. She will volunteer to assist co-workers while doing her own work during peak mail periods, and also volunteers to assist other route drivers when they have unusually high volumes of mail.”
Tillery is a graduate of Farmville Central High School and lives in Greenville.
