Know Your Pelicans - Nick Griffith


#KnowYourPelicans: Nick Griffith

Security


What is your favorite thing about Packer?

My favorite thing about Packer is the friendly interactions among the faculty, staff, students, and parents. I have a unique perspective of the school from the front desk.

Describe a favorite or memorable moment during your time at Packer.

It's hard to pick just one moment. I'd have to say all of the random moments that I have encountered while working here. Those moments that lead to inside jokes are the best.

Name a book/artwork/piece of music that changed your life and explain how.

The movie Rush has greatly influenced my life because it showed the ins and outs of racing. It was the first time that I saw racing in that light. It centers on two famous Formula 1 drivers (Niki Lauda and James Hunt) and their legendary racing rivalry during Formula 1's heyday. I was inspired by their distinct personalities. After watching Rush, I realized that I too wanted to become a Formula 1 driver.

What is something that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?

I'm working toward becoming a professional race car driver. I have already driven an open-wheel car around the Mazda Laguna Seca course during racing school, and I am currently in the process of getting my racing license.
