By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – It’s a great time for our area as many from these parts are celebrating various milestones and achievements. Let’s start by congratulating Arnold Garrett on his recent retirement from Millsap Water Supply Corporation.

He has been affiliated with the company for 41 years and has been the superintendent and maintainer since April 22, 1987. Prior to taking this position Arnold worked for Can-Tex, North Rural Water Supply and Parker County Water. Besides his career with the water company, Mr. Garrett built a very successful construction business, Arnold and Son, which is now run by son Jason.

Arnold is from pioneer Millsap stock and has been happily married to Sherry Huddleston Garrett for 42 years. They have raised two sons, Christopher and Jason, both of whom make their homes in Millsap. The water company is hosting a retirement party for Arnold at the Mesquite Pit on Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. and everyone is invited to come out and wish the retiree well on this new chapter in his life. If planning to attend call the company’s office at 940-682-4416 by Feb. 12 for reserving space and checking on costs. Arnold plans on thoroughly enjoying his retirement with fishing, gardening, and helping out with the construction company. Much happiness Arnold in your retirement!

Next for congratulations is Millsap Elementary School teacher Marty Hungate on being the recipient of the 2013 Jackie Harvey Award, which is presented through Weatherford College. Each year the institution gives this honor to exemplary teachers throughout our region.

Marty is a lifelong learner and has a passion for imparting knowledge to students. Mrs. Hungate is devoted to helping kids succeed. The school district is privileged to have had her work here for the past seven years, as she is such a wonderful asset to the students. Best wishes on this honor Mrs. Hungate.
