The local Extension Office honored one of their own with the 35th Annual Jim Schumacher Day last week.
Jim Schumacher served as the County Agent in Phillips County for years. Serving in the office for seven years, he was active with the kids in the 4-H program, and a shoulder for a rancher or farmer when support or ideas were needed. To the rest of the community he was a down-to-earth man with a big and generous, tireless heart. Jim passed away in 1989, on Jim Schumacher Day, just before the day he had worked and prepared for, was about to begin.
It goes without saying, a friend to all.
