Next, Jerry Swartz will be at Eastwood visiting the agricultural classroom for the day. He has been hired to succeed David Little as the teacher and FFA adviser.
Plans are still being firmed up, but the hope to be able to have some kind of "Open House" so that parents, students, and members of the agriculture community can meet the new teacher.
Swartz, of Findlay, is a recent graduate of Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where he received his master of arts in teaching and learning. In 2002 he earned his bachelor's degree in agriculture from Ohio State University.
Since 2005, he has served as an agricultural education instructor and FFA adviser for River Valley Local Schools in Caledonia. He previously served in a similar capacity at Hardin Northern Local Schools in Dola, Ohio.
There will be a retirement party for Little, who has served 34 years. He is also an Ohio State University graduate, on Saturday from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Riverview Banquet Centre in Pemberville.
This party, hosted by Little's family will be an open house, so guests are welcome to come and go as they please.
