Former School Teacher is Now the Head of AB/C

Angelina Beautiful/Clean has a new executive director. Lisa Griffin is a former school teacher. She started her job new at the chamber Tuesday.

Griffin is still getting oriented with her new position, but looks forward to several fundraisers in the works, including the Amazing Turtle Race, Texas State Forest Festival, and Trash Off Days.

Griffin said, "I think as a former English teacher with a college degree and P.R. skills, they were excited and asked me to come visit and talk with them. The challenges that we have coming up seemed very exciting."

Griffin is a Longview native, but she's lived in Lufkin for 22 years.
