Don A. Storms, Sr., of Plant City is considered the “father” of vocational agriculture in Hillsborough County. It was under his leadership in the 1940’s as a vo-ag teacher and supervisor that vocational agriculture in Hillsborough County became a vital part of the high school. Storms served as a supervisor of vocational agriculture in the Hillsborough County Public School System from 1947 until his retirement in 1965. After his retirement, he taught agriculture at MacDonald’s Training Center for the mentally retarded and enlarged a functioning agriculture department there in 1965.
