Staggs, Jan

Jan Staggs had already earned a Master's Degree in Industrial Relations when he was drafted into the U.S. Army in March, 1966. Following basic training at Ft. Polk, Louisiana, he was sent to Ft. Carson where he learned personnel work on-the-job.  He and his wife Francie were then sent to Okinawa, where he cut personnel orders for junior enlisted personnel. Following his tour in the Army, Jan returned to Illinois and spent the rest of his professional career working for the state of Illinois, most of that time as executive director of the Illinois Occupational Information Coordinating Committee.
