R.D. Grier Excellence in Education

Rita Taggert (Faculty); Christina Hare (Adjunct Faculty); Samantha Willis (Professional/Para-Professional/Technical); Darlene Tucker (Support Staff); Jasper Wagoner (Facilities Staff)

In 1986, the Fanjoy family established the R.D. Grier Excellence in Education Award in honor of R. D. Grier’s devotion and contribution to the longevity of Mitchell Community College. Mr. Grier, before his death in 1993 at the age of 104, tirelessly served for many years as a charter member and chair of the Mitchell College Foundation. Earnings from the Grier Excellence in Education Endowment, with support from the Board of Trustees, make it possible for the College to honor outstanding members of its staff each year for exemplary service in the categories of Faculty, Adjunct Faculty, Professional/Para-Professional/Technical Staff, Support Staff, and Facilities Staff.
