So sorry to hear about your loss. I am a former Ag Instructor, but never worked with Don, but graduated from Liberal High School and had relatives that were his students.

So sorry for your loss. You know the impact Don had on so many student's lives, but he had a tremendous impact on many teachers as well. I am one teacher that Don impacted. When I started teaching at Dadeville, I am not sure what I would have done without Mr. Hankins just down the road at Walnut Grove. He taught me so much, sure a lot about ag topics, but more about to care for students and work hard. I would not be the teacher I am today, if I had not crossed paths with Mr. Hankins. He taught me how to teach and have fun! I thank God for getting to know him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
