Ann Caudill celebrates 40 years of service to Rolla Presbyterian Manor
In 1982, Ann Caudill began her first job as a secretary at Rolla Presbyterian Manor.
As it turns out, that hire was a significant event in the history of the community, which opened its doors in 1974.
In her first decade at Presbyterian Manor, Ann became the office manager, then the director of administrative services. In 2011, she received a promotion to executive director.
“This community is special to me,” Ann said. “In a way, I grew up here.”
Back when she first heard about the secretarial opening at Presbyterian Manor, Ann was a student at Rolla Technical Institute. She heard about the job in an office systems class she enrolled in after graduating from high school.
She learned so much through on-the-job training that Ann decided to put her education on hold for a few years. She went on to earn her administrator’s license, then a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from Missouri University of Science and Technology.
“I have no regrets about my career — I feel blessed to have worked with so many wonderful residents and staff,” Ann said. “Between my family and my work family here at Presbyterian Manor, I have a lot to be grateful for.”
