“Doc” Forsythe Announces Retirement

In a note to Lampasas Radio, Doctor Steve Forsythe, who has spent over 40 years of his life in Agricultural Education, says he is retiring at the end of this contract year.

In his note he says that “..after much reflection and prayer, I informed the school folks Wednesday that I am retiring at the end of this contract year. It has been bittersweet but I know the Lord has a plan. I will miss the kids and all the on-going efforts to help kids, the community, and future teachers. After 40 plus years on the High School, Post-Secondary and State Levels of Agricultural Education, it is time.

Life is short and I hope to spend more quality time with my wife, daughter and son in law, and my grandsons...”

Lampasas Radio notes the huge advances and success of the Ag and CTE program under Steve Forsythe and we too, regret his retirement. We wish him success in that new “retirement career” and can truly say, “We’ll miss you Doc!”

On the other hand, there are still a couple months and a few miles to go for this year’s Ag Science program.
