David Griffith’s best high school remembrance was winning the contest for changing the name of the athletic teams from “Skippies” to Tigers. That was in 1945. Since then, he has changed the lives of many through his professional achievements and civic endeavors. In 1950, he was graduated from Ohio University with a B. S. in electrical engineering. In 1958, he earned an M. S. in electrical engineering from Case Institute of Technology. Dave worked for TRW for ten years, becoming marketing and sales manager of the electrical products department. There, he was manager of a project which developed the first all electric control system power plant. He became a founding partner of Cyberex, Inc., and later was an independent consultant for that company, during which time he was awarded a patent. Dave has written and presented hundreds of papers and articles for technical conferences around the world. Since 1989, he has been very active in Rotary International. In recognition of his work, he received the Citizen of the Year Award in 1994 from Sun Newspapers and was elected a Paul Harris Fellow by Chagrin Valley Rotary.
