Bittersweet Farewell from Chris Duncan
“January 2, 2017 will be my last day as a full time employee of the University of Kentucky. I have been blessed with the best coworkers on earth! I have loved working with the extension homemakers and the wonderful residents of our state. I know that I have learned more than I have ever taught! So now I look forward to more time for my family, my garden, golf, reading, and other hobbies. Thank you all for great memories!”
