2019 Rowe Scholar: Leroy Griffiths, Jr.

Leroy Griffiths, Jr.

Leroy Griffiths, Jr. began his foray into the health professions when he was just nine years old and became a member of the Red Cross Foundation. Through this program he has volunteered at children’s homes, blood drives, and nursing homes. He’s majoring in physiology and neurobiology, which he feels aligns closely with his aspiration to become a neurosurgeon. Leroy loves to dance and has been a member of several cultural dance groups and teams, which he says makes dance a major part of his life. Born in Brooklyn, NY but raised in Jamaica, Leroy moved to back to the US in the seventh grade and now lives in Bloomfield, CT where he graduated from Bloomfield High School.
