After 31 years in the ADDL, Mary Beth Weisner, Laboratory Scientist 3 has retired – effective December 31, 2019. During the span of her career, Mary Beth has served in the Virology, Avian Serology, and Bacteriology Sections of the ADDL and entered public service as a Laboratory Scientist 1 and rose to her current Laboratory Scientist 3 position in the Bacteriology Section. Her reputation for impeccable work, outstanding attention to clients’ needs, and knowledge of veterinary microbiology directly contributed to the success of the ADDL and will be sorely missed. Mary Beth was honored for her years of dedicated public service to the livestock and poultry industries in the State of Ohio with a retirement reception in the ADDL, where she was presented with a commendation from Governor Mike DeWine by ODA Director Dorothy Pelanda, seen in the picture below.
