Former Cuesta College President Grace Mitchell dead at 78
March 20, 2012
Mitchell joined Cuesta in 1989 as the college’s third president. She retired in 1999 and continued to work as a consultant in higher education until her death.
As president of Cuesta, Mitchell oversaw the establishment of the school’s North County campus in Paso Robles.
“I will miss her greatly, but her legacy will live on as part of the storied history of Cuesta College,” said Gil Stork, the current president of Cuesta College Tuesday morning.
A memorial service for Mitchell is being planned for mid-April in San Luis Obispo.
