About Cheryll Grover

Born and raised in Martinez, California, since 1951, has spent a lifetime caring about social justice and the preservation of historic places. Martinez is a small town, the county seat of Contra Costa, that is the home of John Muir and Joe DiMaggio. The schools were all built between the years of 1925 and 1965 when she was in them. Now they are mostly new schools although she was able to help win the battle to preserve the 1931 Spanish Revival Martinez Jr. High preserving its beautiful theatre/assembly room but lost the case with saving the Mt. View Primary closed 6/30/89. She has fought for the schools to provide equal educations to all students of the district, while increasing her enthusiasm to save public and government historical buildings around the county. Now, she fights for one of the oldest freestanding jails in California to be saved from the coming bulldozers of the County.
