A “Cadence Of Excellence”
Remember Shun Griffin? It’s okay if you don’t … he’s thoroughly unimportant.
We only wrote about him because he was hit with a criminal stalking charge and alleged honor code violations during his tenure as president of the Student Bar Association at the notoriously inept Charleston School of Law (CSOL).
Why are we writing about Griffin today? We’re mocking this 25-year-old “leader” for some of the ridiculous statements made on his nauseatingly self-promotional website.
“He’s a big deal – to some at least – but to those that know him best, Shun is just the goofy kid that loves gummy bears, meeting people, hanging out with friends and family, and of course politics,” the bio page on ShunGriffin.com reads.
Wait … did this kid just proclaim to the world that he’s “kind of a big deal?”
It gets better …
“Frankly, you wouldn’t get a sense of his achievements just by talking with this remarkable young man,” Griffin’s bio continues. “Humbled, committed, mature, and focused, Shun A. Griffin walks the cadence of excellence through profound courage and determination. He truly believes in doing all he can in all he does.”
Wait … walks the “cadence of excellence?”
CADENCE OF EXCELLENCE?
What kind of gait is that, exactly … like a shuffle? A pimp stroll? A samba?
Sheesh … talk about getting drunk on your own Kool-Aid.
Over on his booking page, prospective audiences are urged to “let Shun’s optimistic message inspire and encourage people at your next event.”
Don’t worry though, if you represent a youth, church, nonprofit or community initiative, “booking engagement fees are never charged.”
Wow … this kid’s inflated sense of self would make a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade ballon blush.
The saddest thing about this story? Griffin probably has a bright political future ahead of him in South Carolina … were no bad deed goes punished and self-promotion has become an art form.
