Norman Griffiths Sworn in as New Board of Trustees member (36 hits)

The Delaware State University Board of Trustees has welcomed its newest member with the swearing of Norman D. Griffiths, a retired DuPont attorney and Wilmington City Council member.

Appointed by Gov. John Carney, Mr. Griffiths was sworn in by Tom Preston, DSU general counsel, during the Board’s regular Jan. 30 Board meeting. He succeeds David Turner, whose term ended on Jan. 26.

Mr. Griffiths served for 32 years as an in-house legal counsel for DuPont, retiring in June 2015. While advising DuPont officials and their clients on numerous areas of law, he also served 20 years (1992-2012) on the Wilmington City Council – 16 years as an elected councilman and four years as the council president. During that period, he served as the chair of the council’s Finance, Public Safety and Cable Communications committees.

The new DSU trustee brings abundant board experience with him. He has served on the boards of Delaware Technical and Community College, the Riverfront Development Corporation, Wilmington Downtown Visions, Christiana Care Health Systems, Wilmington Economic Development Corp., and others.

He currently serves on the boards of Village of St. John, Inc., Salesianum High School, Delaware Solid Waste Authority, Westside Family Healthcare, Inc., and on the Governance Committee of Christiana Health Care.

Mr. Griffiths earned a 1980 Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from American University and a 1983 Juris Doctorate from Catholic University, Columbus School of Law, both schools in Washington, D.C. He currently is a member in good standing in the District of Columbia Bar.
