Dr. Helen V. Griffith

The Pioneer

She’s the first executive director of E3 Civic High, located on the sixth and seventh floors of the new San Diego Central Library. All eyes are on Griffith, as this building—a library, public meeting space, and school mixed into one—will be home base for 500 urban students. “The opportunity to open a high school in a new, 21st-century public library building is nothing short of phenomenal. E3 Civic High will be the only school in the country to co-exist within a modern literary marvel.”
