Caring For The Carolinas

JACK ROPER

This Monthโ€™s Caring for the Carolinaโ€™s winner is Mr. Griffin Thompson.

MEG WHITELEY – VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR

Griffin has dedicated his entire life to improving the overall health and well-being of his community members, through both volunteering and the recent creation and development of a non-profit called Lil Lifesaverz, where heโ€™s teaching and equipping youth to be first-aid certified.

CLARETTA KERNS โ€“ EARLY COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

Griffin is one of the most outstanding students I have taught and had the pleasure of knowing. He has a heart for educating youth about their health. Fighting for health literacy education in underserved youth communities.

GRIFFIN THOMPSON โ€“ AWARD RECIPIENT

This past year has exposed so many health problems. Itโ€™s been amazing how our community has been able to come together and rally towards it. And I am just thankful that Iโ€™ve had a part to play in that.

DR. ARACELI HERNANDEZ-LAROCHE – ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF MODERN LANGUAGES USC UPSTATE

Congratulations, felicidades Griffin. I am so incredibly proud of you. You know that it is so important to tackle language access for our growing Latinx community here in the Upstate.

MEG WHITELEY – VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR

He is absolutely relentless in his desire and efforts towards positive change within his community, and I can truly say that South Carolina is a better place for having Griffin Thompson in it.
