Siblings in Agriculture and Natural Resources retire after 58 years of combined service
For Bill Frost and Cherie McDougald, UC’s Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) has truly been family. The siblings retired on July 1, with McDougald having logged 36 years in administration and Frost 22 years, the last four years as associate vice president.
McDougald was director of the Business Operations Center at the UC Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Parlier. Before joining UC ANR, she worked for UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine for nine years. Over the 26 years she worked for UC ANR, McDougald built a reputation for deftly navigating UC policies to help county-based UC Cooperative Extension employees get things done properly and efficiently.
Frost joined UC ANR in 1994 as a UC Cooperative Extension advisor in natural resources working in El Dorado, Amador and Calaveras counties, where he applied his expertise to issues relating to agriculture or natural resources in the central Sierra Nevada. He has served in 10 different roles in ANR over the past 22 years.
