This article celebrated Hoyt Oliver’s hard work and dedication to his community. He retired from the Oxford City Council in 2011. “Oliver, 75, will retire from the Oxford City Council in December after a dozen years at Post 3,” the article read. According to the article, he was the son of a teacher and a Methodist preacher, Oliver ended up being both. “The number 12 signals it’s time to move on. It’s a good biblical number,” he told The News then. “It’s the same with teaching: I was 70 and had been teaching for 40 years.” It is our honor to recognize people who were active members of our community for so long.
