I am Angela Rickman Griffith and I am running for position 4 on the GMSD School Board. I’m a third-generation resident of this great city and I attended Riverdale Elementary School and Germantown High School (Class of ’94). I graduated from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, majoring in history and political science, during which time I interned with U.S. Senator Fred Thompson.

I began working in foodservice sales and marketing soon after graduation, and am currently the regional sales manager for St. Clair Foods, a local food manufacturing company, where I have worked for the past 16 years.

I grew up believing that the strength of a community is dependent upon its citizens serving and volunteering at the local level to improve the lives of the families who live there. After college, I completed the course for Rule 31 Family Mediation Certification, where I honed my negotiating skills. I then began giving back to one of my favorite organizations, the Germantown Youth Athletic Association. I served as co-director of the association’s softball program from 1999-2001 and as head coach of the 7U St. Clair Angels in 2003.

I volunteered my time training to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate from 2004 to 2007 and had the privilege of representing the interests of children in court, after they had been removed from home due to abuse or neglect.

My husband and I are active members and supporters of the Germantown Football League and Germantown Baseball League. As a member of the Dogwood PTA/PTO, I have volunteered for the school’s annual Springfest and Book Fair for many years. I also served on the Dogwood 40th Anniversary, Gift and Appropriations Committees.   

I am currently the 2nd Vice Chair on the board of Farmington Presbyterian Day School, a leading preschool program in the city of Germantown that also serves as a local before and after school care program for many GMSD students. As an active member of St. Louis Catholic Church in East Memphis, I have taught fifth grade Sunday School since 2005.

My husband, Brad, and I have been married for eleven years and have two sons, Henry (10) and John David (7), both of whom are proud dolphins at Dogwood Elementary School.
