Growing up, Cynthia Griffin always wanted to go someplace else. After going away to college and law school, and then starting a practice in Virginia, however, she recognized the sense of community in Central Kentucky that you simply don’t find in larger cities, she said.
Now returned to the area in which she grew up, she’s committed to the growing opportunities as a member of the ECTC Foundation Board.
“There are people at the college with amazing vision and I want to be a part of that, to help make college more desirable and accessible and remove barriers so that students can reach their full potential,” she said.
She wants young students to understand the educational and career opportunities they have close to home. And in the future, while she hopes for her own children to go where they feel led, she wants them to have opportunities to stay.
Griffin’s firm, Burnett and Griffin PLLC, prioritizes community involvement and partners with various organizations and initiatives, especially those that serve senior populations. Griffin is a VA accredited attorney focusing on elder law and estate planning.
She, her husband and two children live in Elizabethtown.
