Edgar Floyd Honored for 37-Year Teaching Career

Posted
GLEASON (November 17) — Edgar Floyd was honored Thursday, November 17 for 37 years of teaching agriculture at Gleason School.
 
The retired teacher and community leader started teaching in 1958 and retired in 1996. 
 
During a reception in the school’s cafeteria, former students from the 1960s through the 1990s came to tell Mr. Floyd how much they appreciated him as a teacher and friend. They also enjoyed refreshment made by Simply Southern and marveled at a cake shaped like an FFA jacket with Mr. Edgar Floyd written on it.
 
In Floyd’s honor, the Gleason Agriculture Shop was named for him. Lee Lawrence, principal, made a presentation of a commemorative plaque between games of Gleason High School girls and boys teams.  Mr. Floyd’s family participated in the plaque presentation.
 
Gleason FFA Alumni and the Gleason Alumni Association supported the occassion.
