Ellis and Gladys Griffith have become the third donors in Huntingdon County to create a scholarship fund at Pennsylvania Highlands Community College. The Griffith Family Scholarship will provide funds for a graduate of Tussey Mountain High School to attend Penn Highlands Huntingdon. Mr. Griffith is the former superintendent of Juniata Valley School District and served as the Director of the former Huntingdon Vo-Tech. He currently serves on the Penn Highlands Huntingdon Advisory Council and as a member of the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation Board of Directors.
Pennsylvania Highlands Community College has been operating in Huntingdon County since 2009 and moved into its permanent location on Margy Drive in 2011. “Ellis and his family have been supporters of Penn Highlands from the start.” said College President Dr. Walter Asonevich. “I don’t know that we could ever find someone as dedicated and committed to our efforts in Huntingdon County as Ellis Griffith.”
