To the Editor:
After spending 49 years in education, the last 45 in Trumbull, as a teacher, house principal at Trumbull High and the last 12 years as Director of the Trumbull Agriscience & Biotechnology Program, I am retiring on June 30. I find it necessary and appropriate to thank those people who have contributed to my career here in Trumbull. I would begin by thanking Dr. Juan Lopez and Roger Capobianco who, 45 years ago, helped hire me to teach at what was then Hillcrest Jr. High School. This appointment really was the catalyst which insured my future professional career.
