Note from Carolyn Elliott: Vassie Calvin Jones was known to Tech students over several decades. "Miss Vassie" was on the housekeeping staff, proud to work at Tech and always ready to lend a hand to faculty and students. The yearbook saluted her in 1984 with a full-page picture and recognition as the longest-serving staff member at that time, with thirty-three years at Tech.
