Our featured leading lady today is a Hamlet native and although her career has taken her to various other locations in the country, her heart has always been in “Hub of the Seaboard.” 

Angie Averitte began her almost 38-year career with CSX on April 25,1979. Her hallmark on Richmond County Women’s History was made in 2011 when she became the terminal superintendent at CSX in Hamlet. She held this position until 2014 when she relocated to Florence, South Carolina, to be the assistant division manager for the company. In 2016, she again advanced with CSX and was named the division manager in Nashville, Tennessee, before her retirement on April 18, 2017.  

Prior to her prestigious role as terminal superintendent, Averitte served in other leadership capacities at CSX as a terminal manager and manager of Safety and Operating Practices. 

Returning to her roots, Averitte has become an integral supporter and volunteer at the Hamlet Depot & Museums. She serves as secretary on the Hamlet Depot & Museums Board and was responsible for negotiating with CSX to bring the popular CSX Heritage Series Locomotives that were featured at the Seaboard Festival in October of 2019. Since 2019, Averitte has logged countless hours helping with Food Truck Friday events, depot renovations, and many other projects at the historic hub of Hamlet. 


Additionally, she serves on the board of directors at Samaritan Colony also volunteers at the treatment center. Inspired by her own journey in overcoming substance abuse, Averitte is a passionate advocate for ensuring treatment options are available for those who may not be able to afford them. 

Join us today in celebrating her champion career, paving the way for female leadership in CSX, and her continued dedication to the City of Hamlet, the Hamlet Depot & Museums, Samaritan Colony, and Richmond County!
