It was C. J. Odneal’s last official day of work today!! C. J. has worked for Missouri State at Mountain Grove for over 40 years. He began as a field and maintenance worker and later became the Cellar Technician working with Dr. Karl Wilker in the Missouri State Winery and Distillery. He definitely had a big role in producing our award winning wines. He led many tours of the winery distillery for various groups and left everyone smiling. He also promoted the program at many outside events. Since we could not have a lunch get-together, Dr. Wilker provided doughnuts in the winery for people to stop in and enjoy. We will miss C. J. a lot and wish many happy retirement years for him!!!
