Longtime ECU employee Hagar Jackson celebrated her 80th birthday March 18.
She has worked at ECU for 27 years, beginning in 1986 at age 50. She retired when she turned 65, then returned to work. Since 1990, she has worked in patient access services in the division of cardiology, which is now part of the East Carolina Heart Institute at ECU.
“When you find your nest, stay in it,” she said. She added that she plans to keep working “until I get old enough to retire.”
Co-workers threw her a small party Tuesday at the heart institute.
