Wildcat Production Manager retires

After 28 years of overseeing the production of more than 4,000 Wildcats, Fred Smith is retiring August 4, 2011. Here’s the commemorative (and not entirely factual) Wildcat “front page” staff and former students produced for him. Any memories you’d like to share? Please comment!

    Fred- what a wonderful (and light-hearted) way to appreciate your talents and hard work at the UA Wildcat. You will be missed! I wish you the best in all your future endeavours.

    Well, Big Brother, I’m not sure you’re old enough to retire. What will those folks do without you? You’re like “OLD MAIN”——–always there! You’re dedication and performance for the Wildcat are admirable and appreciated. I anticipate the U of A will be contacting you for some future assignment. Your skills are too valuable!
    Hugs & Love,
    Jan {:-))))))))))

  4. Fred – I’m a bit late in commenting as I just read this, but let me add my congratulations! By now, you are hopefully enjoying retirement and loving it. Any plans to move east? If you travel through Texas (such as San Antonio), please let me know. Again, best wishes for a wonderful retirement! Mike Spohn
