Step­ping Down

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.
