Author, educator and child-welfare advocate Naomi Haines Griffith of Nashville, Tenn., spoke Wednesday, Sept. 28, to students, faculty and staff during the Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus’ first Convocation.

Through humorous and heartfelt tales of growing up impoverished in the South, Griffith praised Arkansas Tech-Ozark students for seeking a post-secondary education and giving back to the community through their eventual careers.
