Hailing from the semi-rural town of Smithville, TX, Wini Griffin is the rockstar College Forward People & Operations Manager. She’s a first-generation college student who graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Huston-Tillotson University and an Associate of Science in Business Administration from Austin Community College. When Wini is not busy building internal and external relationships or managing the day to day at the office, she spends her time playing basketball, traveling with her children, singing with the music up way too high, and dancing to a variety of global music. Wini’s philosophy on life is that “when we can all be good to each other, listen to each other, and help one another succeed, then we all win”. This is the guiding force of her work and life.
