Governor Hutchinson and The First Lady opened the Governor’s Mansion for a toast – and roast – for Ray Hanley.   Mr. Hanley has artfully led AFMC for 30 years and has decided to step down and enjoy some retiree time… that is until his next adventure.  The Governor provided opening remarks and presented Ray with a framed letter.   There were several speakers via video who reminisced about Ray and his talents and the Rex Nelson wrapped up with some very entertaining and heartfelt comments.

Mr. Hanley’s official retirement date is August 31 and Mr. Selig will begin leading AFMC September 1.
