To honor longtime employee Carroll Griffin, Union University has established the Carroll W. Griffin GO Trip Endowment that will help fund its mission efforts around the globe. Griffin, who is retiring this semester after 36 years of service at Union, is director for marketing and enrollment in the School of Adult and Professional Studies. “Carroll Griffin casts a long shadow on Union University,” said Todd E. Brady, Union’s vice president for university ministries. “His love for people has been evident in his service at Union as he has influenced thousands of graduates who are now making a difference for Christ in the world through ministry, education, medicine, science, business, missions and more.” Union’s GO Trips are the annual mission trips for students over winter, spring and summer breaks. A Union alumnus, Griffin has served under four presidents: Robert T. Craig, Hyran Barefoot, David S. Dockery, and Samuel W. “Dub” Oliver. Donations in Griffin’s honor can be made to the endowment at www.uu.edu/giving/cwgfund.
