Mary Beth Booth Retirement

posted May 26, 2016, 9:15 AM by Mary Booth

After 17 years at ACC, I am retiring. Although it’s not official until August, I have taught my last class here and will be leaving soon (if I can ever get my office cleaned out!). Over the years, I have taught thousands of students both GIS and Geography. It’s been so gratifying to see so many of you go on to outstanding careers in GIS and other fields and I am proud of you all. I am honored and humbled that I got to play a tiny role in starting you down your chosen career paths. I thank you for that opportunity.

On a personal note, when my wife Pat Raimondo was killed by an SUV while walking through her work parking lot in October, the outpouring of shared grief, prayers, thoughts, and love from the Central Texas GIS Community was overwhelming. I appreciate all the support more than you can ever imagine and more than I can articulate here. The Austin area GIS community is truly a close-knit family and I am so lucky to have been part of it.

And finally, what kind of teacher would I be if I didn’t leave you with a word of advice? Tomorrows are not guaranteed. Go out and have experiences, even if it means making do with less “stuff”. If the unimaginable happens, it will be your memories of your shared experiences, not your “stuff”, that will help you somehow survive the seemingly unsurvivable for one more day. For goodness sake, you are all geographers – go travel! And don’t put it off – do it now! I wish you safe travels and I hope our paths cross again in the future.
