The Harold Griffith Scholarships
 
Harold Griffith went to Motley High School, then into the US Navy as an officer running a 600 foot ship 8 hours a day, any ocean, any tonnage.   He is currently the owner of Wrico Stamping.    Starting with a 2,000 square foot building and 2 employees,  Wrico has now grown to 6 buildings in 6 states with a total capacity of 340,000 square feet employing over 600 people. Today Wrico Stamping of Minnesota operates out of a 96,000 square foot building in Plymouth Minnesota.
 
Harold has been very generous by giving back to his home town community with three scholarship awards.  These awards have made a large impact on the lives of many young people.
