During the Bryant City Council on Feb. 24, Mayor Jill Dabbs officially recognized Brandon Griffin as the new City of Bryant Parks and Recreation Director.
Griffin is a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Communications and a Minor in Health Sciences. He began his career in 2004 as the Facility and Recreation Supervisor in Roseville, Minn. From there, he became the Programs Director at Falco Heights, Minn., in 2009 and eventually, in 2011, landed in Bryant and began his work as the Recreation Superintendent.
Over the past four years, Griffin has been responsible for the city receiving over $300,000 in project grants along with multiple awards including the Facility of the Year Award and Built Environment Award awarded by the Governor’s Council on Fitness.
“Brandon has developed solid, working relationships with community leaders, organizations and the public which has greatly increased interest in our City and the Quality of Life for visitors and citizens alike,” said Dana Poindexter, assistant to the Mayor. “His past responsibilities in budget development and policy implementations within the parks department have been an enormous asset to the City of Bryant, along with his leadership in these areas.”
“Brandon has a proven track record in the city,” said Dabbs. “I feel his priorities and vision for the Parks Department is exactly what is needed to continue moving this department forward.”
