GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — This week’s Meier Scholar Athlete has got spirit... to take flight.
Molly Griffith is a cheerleader for Catholic Central. Checking in with a 3.9, her grades are about as high as she is when she’s flying an airplane. Yes that’s right! She’s a pilot in training. Her great grandpa, grandpa and dad are all pilots and she’s keen on keeping the family tradition going.
“I like the feeling of just knowing that I can do this. It just gives me a lot of confidence," she explains. "I just like having that."
Griffith hopes to go to St. Louis University and major in aviation.
