The Emily Griffith Technical College has contributed to Denver's economy, workforce, and society for nearly one hundred years. Emily Griffith saw a need for a place of learning and training in 1916, when war was in the air and Denver's population was reshaping to better accommodate world controversies. Judith Lee Berg, a Denver native and member of the Emily Griffith Foundation Board, will talk about the spirit that planted Emily Griffith, and the impact of its growth within the Denver community.
