We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Samuel Mitchell ’12 on October 3rd, 2017.

During Sam’s time at IWU, he earned 4 varsity letters in swimming. He was an academic all-conference swimmer and was student body vice-president for one term. He spent a summer abroad at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

Sam was an accomplished triathlete, winning or placing in his age group in numerous triathlons, including the Transamerica Chicago triathlon, and he was a rock climbing enthusiast. Sam had the courage to put himself in uncomfortable situations for personal growth. While working as a camp counselor at Deer Valley YMCA summer camp, he loved the camaraderie and closeness of the staff and campers. Sam valued healthy food and locally grown produce; he spent 6 months traveling from Illinois to Washington state working with Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF).

He looked for ways to help and connect with his community. He fought for social justice by calling and writing his local and state political officials. You may view his full obituary here.

Sam will be dearly missed by all those whose lives he has touched.
