东格林斯博罗（5月22日2020年） - 第二LT。格兰姆斯的Kristofer是人格化的“阿吉土生土长的。”
Kristofer’s grandfather, Clifton Grimes, was commissioned from A&T in 1954. He was stationed in Michigan, then Japan and spent some time recruiting students to A&T before separating from the Air Force 在 the late ’50's.
His father, Kenneth, who also commissioned at A&T, was his Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (JROTC) aerospace science instructor 在 high school and encouraged him to pursue military ambitions.
“I took him to the A&T detachment when he was in junior high and showed him the pictures of me and his grandfather up on the wall. You could see the light in his face,” Kenneth said . “Kris embodies the Air Force’s core values of integrity, service before self and excellence 在 all that he does.”
Not only does the military blood run 在 the family, so does the Aggie Pride. Of Kenneth’s four children who all graduated from college, three are A&T alumni.
“Our whole family and even our extended family have been at A&T,” Kristofer Grimes said. “Everybody I’ve ever really been around was an Aggie. I had so much support here and it was the best pick for me.”
That support got him through his years at A&T with his sister and family friends 在 the area while he was away from home.
