Dr. Rich Honored


Dr. Rich honored for Commission service with painting by Rick Hill

Fifth District Commission member Dr. Jim Rich, when reappointed last year by Gov. Steven Beshear to his ninth consecutive term, became the Department’s longest serving member of the Fish and Wildlife Commission. Now beginning his 34th year representing the northern Kentucky area, his long service was recognized with a surprise presentation of a Rick Hill painting of him, adorned in waders and fishing a Kentucky stream. Commissioner Jon Gassett, Deputy Commissioner and longtime fishing companion Benjy Kinman and Hill were joined by the entire commission in presenting Rich the framed original painting. Arnold Mitchell, commissioner of the department when Rich was first appointed, was also on hand for the presentation. The painting will appear on the cover of the upcoming fall edition of Kentucky Afield magazine.
