Robin Gaebe has been involved in agriculture for over 60 years, having grown up on a dairy and small grain farm. His early years also included many positive extra-curricular activities including 5 sports, band, choir, drama, and FFA. As a 14 year old, Robin took out a loan to buy dairy cows for his Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) project in high school. He ended up paying for a good portion of his college education at University of Nebraska from the dairy profits. Since then, Mr. Gaebe has taught agriculture education and science for 35 years. As a result, many of his 3500 students are now in the industry. Twenty eight of those years were spent at San Marcos High School (SMHS) teaching Ag Biology, Vet Science, Floriculture, Ag Business/Economics, Ag Mechanics, and more. Now retired, he is involved with SDAITC, San Marcos Education Foundation (SDEF) helping teachers in the SMUS District, Agriculture Advisory Committee for SMHS, and the advisory committee for Mesa College Veterinary Technology program.
