Valerie Barbour Retires
Valerie Barbour, personnel officer for NIEHS and other institutes as well in recent years, retired at the end of April after 37 ½ years at NIH. Barbour said she doesn't have any specific plans other than traveling to Florida, Hawaii and Denver. She was the personnel officer at the National Eye Institute before coming to NIEHS 11 years ago. Barbour, who lives in Cary and intends to remain there, said she will likely be back for social events and parties related to NIEHS. Barbour planned to spend her first day of retirement at the mall and at a day spa. She has four sons and two grandkids in the area who will, no doubt, help fill her free time.
