The Fall 2015 semester will be Newel Kimball’s last semester as a guitar teacher before he retires.

He said he plans to write gospel and hymn books for the guitar, after retirement.

Kimball said he plans to make use of his vacation house and to continue running his various businesses with the help of his wife.

Gloria Kimball, who has illustrated many of her husband’s books and transported him from place to place throughout the years, will continue to support him in his endeavors after retirement.

Newel Kimball said he isn’t quite done yet, and hopes to have full classes in the fall semester to get the most out of his time left at BYU-Idaho.
