Kimberly Camara-Harvey, Mitchell College’s new associate director of athletics and senior woman administrator, recently arrived on campus ready to contribute to the success of Mitchell’s student-athletes.
Camara-Harvey said, “Mitchell’s Department of Athletics has had some amazing accomplishments, and I know there are even more on the horizon. I’m very excited to be part of what next. The staff, both in athletics and throughout the college community, is clearly dedicated to the success of students, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of that. I love seeing the student-athletes reach their goals, not just athletically but also in the classroom and beyond graduation.”
