It is with sadness that we share the news of the death of Kay Adams, Grossmont High School English teacher from 1973 to 1999, on October 30, 2017, at the age of 78. Kay touched thousands of students and teachers with her enthusiastic teaching style and her ability to inspire others.
While at Grossmont, Kay was English Department Chairman, District English Council Chairman, GHS Teacher of the Year, and GHS Golden Apple Teacher. Kay was recognized for her love of literature and her ability to “bring out the best” in those she met.
After Kay’s retirement, she moved first to Utah with her husband Doug, and after his passing, to Missoula, Montana, both moves to be closer to family. A private service will be held in Utah.
Jim was excited to be honored in 2015 and was looking forward to the History of the Instrumental Music Program Book, which traces the 95 year history of the program. See the Museum Store page for more information about the book.. See Hall of Honor page for more information about Jim's impact on GHS.
