LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Sallie Fahey is celebrating her 45th year with the Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission.
After graduating from Purdue, Fahey started out as a planning technician in 1973.
She's originally from a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio but ended up staying in Greater Lafayette after college.
Fahey currently serves as Excutive Director of the APC.
She said she never imagined Tippecanoe County would look the way it does now.
"Here's a good example, Creasy Lane which is one of our busiest roads was gravel for a large part of it," said Fahey.
She said she doesn't have plans to retire just yet.
"As long as I'm having fun and as long as I feel like I make a difference, then I would keep working," said Fahey. "But I do think about things I could do with volunteer time and things my husband and I could do together."
Fahey said she's proud of what the APC has accomplished in her time with the county.
The commissioners announced her anniversary with the county at their meeting Monday morning.
