Tiyanna Griggs, daughter of Retired Army Sgt. 1st Class Mark Griggs and Tonya Griggs of Daytona Beach, Florida, was crown Liberty County High School’s 2015-2016 Homecoming Queen on Sept. 18, during halftime of the Panthers’ game against Monroe.
Tiyanna Griggs, a senior, holds a certificate in early childhood and CPR and is the captain of the cheerleading team. In addition, she helps spearhead a lot of activities in the community and school such as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Powder Puff Football, Toys for Tots and Relay for Life Pep Rally Dance in honor of coach Kim Brown, who is a cancer survivor. She directs the Mini Panther Camp in the summer, is a current member of the yearbook staff and is president of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).
Coach Kim Brown, supervisor of the cheerleading team, said Griggs is an excellent captain, a hard worker, tries to place a smile on everyone’s face, builds team unity, will succeed in anything she puts her mind to do and will be truly missed when she graduates.
Griggs’ plan after graduation is to attend North Carolina State University and major in early childhood education.
