It used to be commonplace that someone would work their entire career at one employer. We don’t hear much of this happening these days as people jump from job to job and return to school to learn another career. However, Tintera has dedicated her career and life to helping others through the Center’s mission.
The past, present and future of the Center could be nowhere complete without her leadership. Working in just about every position and department during her years here, Tintera has shared countless hours of her time, her endless energy and her unflagging enthusiasm to guide staff, volunteers and clients. It’s rather a unique twist of fate that she now celebrates her 45th work anniversary just as the Center celebrates its 95th year of existence. It is with deepest affection and respect that we thank Rita for her tenure and leadership to the Center!
