VNA Employee Celebrates Half-Century Mark

Released: 6/23/2022 6:00:00 AM

Diane Paluszynski was recognized for 50 years of service to the VNA at the monthly Site Leadership Meeting held on June 22.

Diane started her career at the VNA on June 28, 1972, and has held a variety of clerical roles throughout the years, most recently as a clinical support specialist. 

The same week that she was hired:

  • Helen Reddy’s song “I Am Woman” was at the top of the charts
  • The F-15 Eagle jet fighter was unveiled at the McDonnell Douglas factory in St. Louis
  • President Richard Nixon ordered the FBI to stop investigating a beak-in at the Watergate Hotel, a move that would cost him the presidency when tapes of that conversation became public

A surprise celebration for Diane and office staff was held on the actual date of her anniversary.
