Chances are if you have ever called MSEC for a new username or password, you have spoken with Betty Fulton. You may not know her face, but chances are you have heard her friendly voice. Not many companies have employees who have been around for 35 years, and we are lucky Betty Fulton came to work here in 1978.
Betty first joined the Surveys Department, where she manually entered all the survey data and time. Technology has changed quite a bit since then, at that time the Front Range Survey took up 38 eight-inch floppy disks.
Her latest job at MSEC was updating our membership database (issuing and assisting members with access to our website). Her favorite part about working for MSEC has been servicing members and assisting colleagues. Betty has made wonderful friends within MSEC and established good relationships with many of our members.
When asking Betty about her time here, she said “MSEC was a wonderful place to raise my two girls, our CEO believed in family first; therefore I was able to attend all their school functions.” Today is her last day with MSEC, and she has been here long enough to remember when there was only one building (there are now three).
In her spare time, she enjoys teaching children and adults at her church, as well as the GMBC of Colorado. During retirement, she plans to become more involved in her church, purchase a three wheel bicycle, get to know her neighbors better, and volunteer at her local library to read to children. She also plans to travel and spend more time with her seven grandchildren.
Betty leaves MSEC with this quote, which seems fitting given her positive and kind voice: “One day at a time, this is enough. Don’t look back and grieve over the past for it is gone. Do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”
