WHY I SERVE​: RANDY GRISSOM

"Access to quality healthcare is crucial to any city or region’s success and I feel it is my duty to give back to my community by supporting our long-time local hospital.  Healthcare is key to our economic well-being and the jobs created support our citizens and their families.  Additionally, there is a close tie between healthcare and my career in higher education and I look forward to supporting this relationship."
