WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. — Brandon Griffin received University of the Cumberlands’ first-ever AATF (American Association of Teachers of French) Outstanding Senior in French Award, during the 50th annual Honors Day convocation on April 27. In the future, the award will be given annually to a graduating, non-native French-speaking senior, who has studied French for at least three years, maintained an A average in French, and participated in additional activities that promote the French language and its cultures.

Griffin, the son of Mary and Richard Griffin of Hampton, Virginia, is a psychology major and French minor. Upon graduation he plans to work with children and perhaps attend graduate school. Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in 37 major fields of study; 30 minors; nine pre-professional programs; graduate degrees, including a doctorate and certifications in education; an MBA; and online programs.
