District Superintendent J.J. Galloway presents a retirement recognition plague to the Rev. Lewis See. Rev. See served the United Methodist Church in Arkansas for 40 years.

After 40 years of faithful service to the United Methodist Church, the Rev. Lewis See received a plaque of recognition during a presentation ceremony on Sept. 2 at Central Avenue United Methodist Church.

The plaque, which was presented to Rev. See by Northeast District Superintendent J.J. Galloway, recognized the many years of service that Rev. See had given to the church, not only as the leader of multiple congregations in the former North Arkansas Conference but also as a former District Superintendent.

Rev. See was unable to attend the 2018 Annual Conference in Hot Springs, Arkansas to receive this retirement recognition, so plans were made after Annual Conference to arrange for him to receive his recognition by his daughter, Jennifer See Rodgers.

During the service, Rev. See was served Holy Communion by Galloway who then received Communion from Rev. See. During his time as District Superintendent, Rev. See helped to mentor many young pastors, including Galloway. Rev. See was her very first District Superintendent.

Rev. See and his wife, Melody, currently reside in Batesville, Arkansas.
