Dora Totoian - November 2016
Gary Mitchell is a three-time cancer survivor, but you wouldn't know it off the bat. Mitchell holds a black belt in two types of martial arts, plays the saxophone in two bands, and is an Operations and Technology Management professor who's been teaching at UP Beacon since 2005.
He taught full-time during his three battles with cancer, his students were rarely even aware of his condition. Mitchell has a very resilient attitude and rather than dwelling on his limitations, he focuses on what he loves, particularly martial arts and the saxophone.
"I still work hard, I think it's important to do a good job, there are many things I wasnt to do...but these days, nothing takes priority over the human aspects for me" Mitchell shares.
