Name: Mary Jones
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Retired Victoria school district employee
First job: My first job was with the Victoria school district's accounting department. I stayed there for 25 years.
What it taught me: When I first started working there, a man with the company came up and asked me if I knew how to make an important piece of the budget. I learned real quick how to make a budget, amend it and subtract from it.
