BALTIMORE — Roland Park Place (RPP), Baltimore City’s only not-for-profit continuing care retirement community (CCRC), announced the appointment of former state delegate Keiffer Jackson Mitchell, Jr. to its dynamic Board of Directors. Mitchell brings to RPP a lifetime of public service experience, as well as a robust background in finance, government, education and community relations.
Mitchell was recently appointed as a Special Adviser by newly elected Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. He represented Baltimore City’s 44th Legislative District from 2011 to January 2015. The Baltimore native also served three former terms as a Baltimore City Council member with a stint at Wachovia Bank as an officer of small business banking specializing in nonprofit clients. In addition, he is an experienced educator having taught political science at Towson University, history at The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland, and lecturing at Johns Hopkins University. Mitchell currently assists the Upper and Middle School Admissions office at St. Paul’s School in recruitment and outreach.
“We are pleased to welcome Keiffer Mitchell as the newest board member to Roland Park Place as we pursue and navigate healthy growth for the community,” said Roland Park Place Board of Directors Chair, Dr. Christopher Kearney. “Mr. Mitchell and Roland Park Place share a love for, and long-standing connection to, Baltimore City that will serve as a wonderful foundation to begin work together.”
Mitchell began his first three-year board term in February. Among his community activities, Mitchell also serves on the boards of the Echo Hill Outdoor School, the Family Tree, Habitat for Humanity, and his alma mater, Boys’ Latin School.
