Zina Plantus

Financial aid clerk to write a few retirement postcards

Zina Plantus is most commonly known to her student clients as “the postcard lady,” for her collection on display in the financial aid office, says acting director Marian Doll.

“Zina’s workstation is wallpapered with postcards from vacations that she has taken and that others have taken,” Doll says. “Many times, students have brought in postcards to add to her collection.”

Plantus is retiring at the end of October after a 29-year career with the University of Windsor. Doll says her even temperament suited the Student Awards and Financial Aid Office.
