Pass and ID associate trades in badge for retirement

By John Yruegas DSCC Supervisory Security Assistant

Harvellia Thomas, known to her coworkers as Harvey, retires after 30 years of government service April 30. 

Thomas has been part of and witness to many changes at the Defense Supply Center Columbus. 

She started her civil service career at Ft. Knox as a recreation assistant with the MWR Fitness Center, then transferred to DSCC where she developed quite a following for her fitness classes. 

Ten years ago, she transitioned to work in the Pass & ID office. Quickly making the change from working out to working at a computer, she became very effective issuing DOD identification credentials and local access badges. 

Thomas is looking forward to moving on to a different job and name, full-time Mi-Mi – a name given to her by her 5-month old granddaughter.
