Dr. Tull comes to Macon County from a Pennsylvania VA Hospital. He has some mighty fine shoes to fill. Lucien Green, who has retired, handled his directorship with fairness and courtesy to all, running the Nation's seventh largest VA in a superb manner. He's going to remain in Tuskegee, and that's a treat for us. Mr. Green is an outstanding civic leader who cares about his community, and his decision to remain means much. We wish Dr. Tull much luck in the months ahead. The VA is the county's largest single employer, and directing those employees is a major task. With Dr. Tulrs credentials and experience, though, he should be fine. And if there are problems, Lucien Green is just down the street a ways. --STAN vorr Announcement MANPOWER SPECIALIST RESPONSIBILITIES: 1 Responsible for all local developments and Manpower Training Programs. 2.
