Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has appointed Mitchell Hurst to the Clark State College Board of Trustees. His board appointment is effective October 30.
The Clark State Board of Trustees oversees the operations of the College. Trustees are appointed by the Governor of Ohio for six-year terms.
“Mitch Hurst is a student- focused and community minded leader who is very familiar with Clark State,” said Dr. Jo Alice Blondin, president of Clark State. “He has demonstrated his considerable talents and leadership on the CS Foundation Board, and recently served as Chair. I am looking forward to working with him on Board to continue to lift up students through academic and workforce education.”
Hurst is actively involved within the Springfield and Clark County community with current and previous leadership roles in The Clark State College Foundation; The United Way of Clark, Champaign, and Madison Counties; the Springfield Museum of Art; and The Clark County Literacy Coalition.
“I look to continue to strengthen the relationship of the College with the communities and businesses within our service area, while continuing to provide a high-quality education to our students,” he said.
Hurst is a native of McConnelsville, Ohio. After graduating from Morgan High School, he attended the United States Military Academy and earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a major in Accounting from The Ohio State University. He lives in Springfield, Ohio.
Hurst joined The Yost Superior Company in June 2022 as Controller, after retiring from a 34 year plus career with Speedway LLC, which was purchased by 7-Eleven, Inc. in May 2021. He served in various management and leadership positions while at Speedway, including his last two assignments as Vice President & Controller and Vice President of Shared Services, from which he retired in June 2022.
