Meet The Candidate
Hi, my name is Angela (Rickman) Griffith, and I’m a third-generation resident of Germantown. I attended Riverdale Elementary and Germantown High School, Class of ’94. I studied History and Political Science at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, during which time I served as an intern for US Senator Fred Thompson. In 1999, I completed the course for Rule 31 Family Mediation Certification. I have been employed in foodservice sales and marketing for over twenty years, as the Regional Sales Manager for St. Clair Foods.
Upon returning to Germantown after college, I 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 then as Head Coach of the 7U St. Clair Angels in 2003.
Always interested in helping youth, I became a CASA Volunteer (Court Appointed Special Advocate) representing in court the interests of children removed from their home due to abuse or neglect from 2004-2007.
My husband Brad and I have been married for fifteen years and chose to live in Germantown to raise our family. We have two sons, Henry(14) who attends Houston High and John David(11) who attends Houston Middle. Brad currently serves on the boards of both Germantown Baseball and Football Leagues. As a member of the Dogwood PTO, I volunteered for the school’s annual Springfest and Book Fair. Additionally, I served on the Dogwood 40th Anniversary Gift and Appropriations Committees. I am currently an active member of both the Houston Middle PTO and Houston High PTSO.
I previously served as the 2nd Vice Chair on the board of Farmington Presbyterian Day School, which is a leading preschool program in the city of Germantown and serves as a local before and after school care program for many GMSD students.
My family and I are members of St. Louis Catholic Church where I have taught 5th grade Sunday School since 2005.
I am a graduate of Leadership Germantown Class of 2021 and currently serve on the Germantown Historic Commission.
