Square 16


CHARLES B. “PETE” GRIFFIS, III

Donor – July 20, 2002

My husband, Pete, was passionate about books and reading, music, and sports.  He played football in high school and some in college.  He taught high school after he received his Master’s Degree in History and before entering Law School.  While teaching, he also coached track, and started running.  Since I couldn’t embroider the sports he took an interest in (too many!), I decided the runner on his square could represent athletics and running.  He was a brilliant man, but loved simplicity.  It is my hope that we would approve of this square because of his directness of expression.
