Jason Grigsby recently returned with his wife and six-year-old daughter to his Ann Arbor roots. Now an EMU student, he served 10 years in the U.S. Army. As an Infantry Sergeant, he was stationed at Ft. Riley, Kansas; Baumhoulder, Germany and Bosnia-Herzegovina (peace-keeping operation); Ft. Irwin, California (Desert Warfare Trainer OPFOR); Zanesville, Ohio (army recruiter); and Ft. Carson, Colorado (armorer).
A transfer student from Washtenaw Community College, Grigsby’s Symposium research project will create a music video of an original song he wrote, produced, engineered and arranged, entitled, “As We Assimilate.” The lyrics assert, “...we of one mind, we of one will, we of one soul, we of one dream.”
He is excited to expand his technical expertise from audio recording engineer to include video production and editing with the assistance of his faculty mentor, Dr. John Cooper.
