Marianna Anglin was recognized for her retirement at a Putnamville District post during a recent meeting. She was presented a retirement plaque commending her years of service by Putnamville District Commander Lt. Dan Jones and Assistant District Commander Matt Mischler.
"Marianna was a very hardworking and dedicated employee over the years," Jones said.
Anglin began her career on Dec. 14, 1977 as a vehicle inspection clerk at the former Charlestown Post in southeastern Indiana.
In this capacity, she was responsible for all clerical duties related to vehicle inspections.
In 1980, the Charlestown Post closed and a new facility was built a few miles away in the town of Sellersburg. The district was renamed the Sellersburg District.
At the new post, Anglin settled into her new position as the data input operator, an upgrade from the former vehicle inspection unit.
In this role she was responsible for entering all traffic citations, warnings and vehicle crashes into the state police data system, along with other clerical duties assigned by the district commander.
In 1996, Anglin met a newly assigned trooper to the Sellersburg Post, Don Anglin. The two were married in February of 1999, and later that year the couple transferred to the Terre Haute Post, as Don was a native of Vigo County.
Anglin continued in her capacity as data input operator at the Terre Haute Post until the post closing in July of 2010. She was then transferred to the Putnamville Post.
Anglin is a Clark County native having been raised in New Washington.
Along with meeting and working with many wonderful people and assisting in many state police related functions over the years, the two highlights of her career were being nominated for the 2007 Meritorious Service Award for outstanding job performance and being named one of the "Top Five" civilian employees in the State of Indiana for 2006.
Anglin is an avid lover of animals and the outdoors. She plans on spending retirement days with her beloved horse Casey, her beagle Peyton and working around their small farm in rural Vermillion County with her husband Don.
As far as offering any advice, Anglin said, "Follow your hopes and dreams because they can come true. Don and I are perfect examples of that."
