Elizabeth Davis began her career as a school secretary in 1936. She’s now 99 years old and recently celebrated her 80th year working for Culver Academies. It’s very evident she is passionate about her work. Despite taking a couple years off to have children, she’s remained forever loyal to this school system. Over the course of the years, she has worked under 9 Head of Schools and started this school year under the 10th.

One thing Davis is responsible for is managing the entire school’s faculty records. How, you might ask? By typewriter of course! She never learned to use computer and has no plans on upgrading to current technology. Davis stated she has never wanted another job and has no plans on retirement. She certainly sets the standard for ambition and drive in the workplace. It goes to show that when you find your career passion, you never have to work a day in your life!
