One of my great joys is working with our great staff here at Grace. For over four years I've had the great privilege of working with Kathy Borland, who has served as our Business Administrator. Kathy has been a loyal friend and confidant to me in these early years at Grace. She's helped bring "order out of chaos" in our administrative area. Her service to the Lord and His people at Grace and to me has been invaluable.

At the end of May we will reluctantly release Kathy to pursue other callings.

Kathy has recently been appointed as the Director of Nursing at Cuesta College. This bit appeared in Friday's Tribune. . . .

Cuesta College

Former General Hospital nursing director Kathy Borland is the new director of Cuesta College’s nursing and allied health programs.

Borland, a San Luis Obispo resident, held the General Hospital position from 1993 until her resignation in March 2001. She began working for the hospital in 1986.

She is replacing Mary Parker, who directed the Cuesta program for 35 years.

Cuesta has registered nursing and licensed vocational nursing programs, in addition to nine allied health programs, including those for nursing assistants and emergency medical technicians.

Fifty-six new RNs graduate each year from Cuesta, but the program has more than 200 students on its waiting list. The college recently stopped adding names to the list so it could discuss possibly expanding the program. Cuesta is the top source of local nurses.

If we have to lose Kathy to another opportunity, I'm glad its a BIG one like this one. I have great confidence that Kathy will be used of God to take the nursing program at Cuesta College to new and higher places. Congratulations, Kathy!
