January 2015 - Staff Highlight

In this issue of the EdGate Observer, we would like to introduce a member of our Data Entry Specialist Team, Gerry Griggs.  

Gerry came to EdGate in 2011 after a varied career in the Air Force and civil service, including eight exciting years as a meteorologist flying into typhoons and hurricanes. Leaving active duty, he landed civil service positions at seven bases while following his wife, an Air Force attorney, for the next twenty years. They both retired in 2008, settling near Bend, OR. His experience with computer systems and data management meshes well with collecting and collating metadata for EdGate. He holds a BA in Psychology from WWSU and a BS in Meteorology from North Carolina State University.
