  • A knack for fixing things

    Juston Milby discovered he had a knack for fixing things while he was a young boy helping his dad repair equipment on their farm at the edge of LaRue and Hart County.

    “I helped Dad work on our tractor equipment and also that of our neighbor, Ralph Lobb, whose farm was near us,” he said. “Ralph would tear it up, bring it to us, and we’d fix it.”

    His skill as a mechanic led to a career in that field, a career that will come to an end September 30 when he retires as LaRue County Schools’ vehicle maintenance manager.
