Jeanette M. La Grange was department secretary in the Department of Statistics for 32 years (1984-2016). Her friendly, helpful attitude and smiling face was the first thing you would notice when coming into the main office. Jeanette received the 2006 Staff Merit Excellence Award. Jeanette's many and varied duties included the construction of schedules for visitors, both faculty and prospective students, to the Department of Statistics, making travel arrangements and overseeing the logistical elements of the department. Before coming to Statistics, she worked at Student Health Services (1981-1984) as a medical transcriptionist. Jeanette worked briefly in Curtiss Hall part time, before going to Student Health Services. While her children were young, she worked at the Child Development Laboratory School on campus.
