Jeanne Gray, former director of student business services at UCSC,
Gray came to UCSC from Atlanta in 1987, where she had been manager of
student loans and collections for Emory University. She retired in 1998
and moved to Arkansas. Gray was highly respected and liked by her staff
and coworkers, who recall that her Southern charm helped her win over
more than one difficult challenge.
Her passion away from work was the Literacy Program, and she spent many
hours reading to children and encouraging them to become avid readers.
