MARIANNE GRIFFIN | BOARD PRESIDENT

Marianne Griffin moved to Grand Junction in 2020 after living in Mexico for 6 years. She came to Grand Junction to be close to family. She has actively supported public radio since the late 1960's: Pacifica Radio in California, KDUR at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO, KSUT in Ignacio and KSJD in Cortez, CO, where she served on the Board of Directors through grant writing and Chaired their fundrasing committee.

Marianne has also served on other Boards. She served and chaired Hilltop House Borad of Directors in Durango from 1986 to 2001. Hilltop House in Durango is a halfway house for non-violent offenders to help them reintergrate into society after serving prison time. Ms. Griffin also served and chaired the Durango Lively Arts Community Theater Company Board of Directors from 1981 to 1991. She says the Lively Arts board was a very hands-on Board of Directors. Every member had to be prepared to build a set, act, produce a play, direct a production, sell tickets, or find props and costumes. "We had lots of fun, especially with our musical productions like, Paint Your Wagon and Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat."  She added, "The Lively Arts Community Theater Company and KAFM Community Radio have similar goals; to bring fun and pleasure to their audience through music and art."

Marianne Griffin retired from Fort Lewis College where she directed two federally funded educational programs that enabled low-income youth and adults to access post-secondary education opportunites. She says that it was very satisfying to be honored wiht the opportunity to help young people and their family achieve their dreams. "For many families, this was the first high school graduate and the first to go on to college, very special."
