PRINCETON, KY.
   Dr. Don Hershman ended his career as extension plant pathologist at the University of Kentucky recently in a talk at the Regional Corn Meeting in Miner, Mo. He completed his 31-year tenure with the University of Kentucky the end of December.
   “I’m moving into a new phase of my life where I’ll be spending the majority of my time completely out of agriculture,” he announced. “I’ll be doing ministry with my wife, Kathy, and I’m also an artist and a singer/songwriter, so I have a lot of things on the table.”
   While he has enjoyed his work in agriculture, he admitted it’s time to move on. The University of Kentucky has named Carl Bradley, the current extension specialist at the University of Illinois, as his successor who will take the reins at University of Kentucky on July 1.
   “It’s been a great ride,” he said. “I love agriculture but it’s time to step aside.” ∆
