Video: Extraordinary Employee - Helen Wiliams

Helen B. Williams has dedicated her life to serving the agricultural community in Amherst County, Va., and in the process, she's earned the distinction of being the longest serving employee at Virginia Tech, an institution with more than 7,000 employees across the country. 

After graduating from the former Central High School in 1957, making .75 an hour, she began working as a general typist in the Amherst County Virginia Cooperative Extension office. 

Although her title and salary have changed a few times in the 55 years since then, one thing has remained the same - her commitment to the only community she has ever called home.
