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。”

他所代表的第三代在美国的家人委托的格里姆斯空军保留军官训练在北卡罗莱纳州农业技术州立大学队(ROTC)。

格兰姆斯,谁因为covid-19限制了北卡罗来纳州东部的家完成大四那年,会用自己的电气工程学位试点远程飞机。

在他的虚拟投产仪式,他的父亲,退休LT。山坳。肯尼斯ķ。格兰姆斯,谈到他的家庭的军事传统。

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.

“对我们来说,农学院的骄傲不只是一个口号,它是生活的一种方式,”肯尼思说。 “克里斯继续我们的传统,我们为他感到骄傲。”
