Optimism and Purpose

I learned important values at Lockheed
by Carol L.

I started working at Lockheed Missile and Space Division in Sunnyvale in April 1959. I was 18 years of age. I started in blueprint files, then material planning and material checking. I worked in Buildings 102, NIROP, 151, 152, 153 and 126. I became a lead at the age of 21. Lockheed gave me the chance to learn, promote and realize the importance of a work ethic. That core value helped me throughout my career. I was laid off in June 1970. I still claim that Lockheed was the best place I ever worked, and I am grateful that I started my career there.
