The first-ever female Walmart store manager is about to retire. Since 1975, we’re sure you’ve seen Jane Marshall in the mornings, afternoons, nights, weekdays and weekends doing all sorts of jobs at the Clinton Walmart. A ceremony honoring Jane’s many years at Walmart and many, many lives she has touched was held Wed. (7/26) at the store. As you will see when you go to the Chamber’s Facebook page, a large number of past and present employees, as well as friends and family, were on hand to celebrate with Jane.
