The Trenton-Dade Optimist Club invited Dade County School Board Candidate and Creative Discovery Museum Director Dr. Jayne Griffin to discuss the runoff election and how the museum is handling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Griffin explained in detail why members of the club should consider voting for her in the upcoming election. Griff also discussed why she decided to run for the At-Large board member position in the first place.
“I feel called to run,” Griffin said. “My work is coming to an end and I’m looking to be involved with the community that I love.”
Griffin said that she has taught and been involved in schools ranging from the smallest of small towns to big suburban schools, adding that Dade County is the best of the best.
“I hope we understand what we have here,” Griffin said. “What we have here is amazing.”
Griffin was asked about how the Creative Discovery Museum is handling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Griffin said the museum opened two weeks ago to the public, allowing for two different sessions per day. Masks are required in order to enter and the staff is cleaning at all hours of the day. Griffin said that 45 educators were terminated due to the pandemic, so cleaning involves every staff member doing their part.
