[Histonet] RE: Histo Professionals Day

In 1962 I had completed my first year at Georgia and needed to supplement my tuition since my parents could not foot the whole bill for my next year.  I got a job at a furniture store as a bookkeeper/secretary.  It took me a week to figure out it was not my future profession.  The friend I was rooming with at the time worked in the histology lab at the main hospital.  She told me there was an opening and I jumped at the chance to change jobs.  I had no idea what histology was, but she said "oh you will like it."  She did not stay in the profession and quit 6 months after I started.  I stayed, so I kind of stumbled into the histology profession and will have been in it for 48 years in July.  I was certified HT(ASCP) in 1964, HTL(ASCP) in 1981 and QIHC in 2000.  
That's  my story and I am sticking to it.

Perhaps what each of us ought to do is write a quick line naming the one
person that got you involved in histology and how they did that.  I'd be
willing to gather them and pass them on to NSH so they could post it at
the Seattle meeting.  If you'd like to do this, send the email to
nmhisto <@t> comcast.net and I'll collect.  Just an idea...
