Lifetime Achievement awards recognize volunteers for their longstanding leadership and commitment to the fight against cancer. The award is presented annually, with honors from the six-state High Plains Division Board of Directors. Volunteers qualify for this recognition having served in three or more leadership positions with the Society and having volunteered for 15 years or longer. In addition, awardees consistently demonstrate dedication to the Society’s mission.

Griffith has been instrumental in the planning committee of the Relay For Life of Cole County as well as the Cole County American Cancer Society Board, both of which he is still serving. Griffith is also one of the founders of the local Relay event. His initial volunteer work with the Society began in 1989 with the Longest Day of Golf event. Through his 22 years volunteering with the American Cancer Society he has also been the lead for the Missouri Ambassador Constituent Team District #4, has served on the Kansas City/Northern Missouri Relay University committee, the Heartland Division Task Force, the High Plains Division Relay Advisory Team, the High Plains Division Relay For Life Marketing and Communications Task Force, and has been involved in the High Plains Division Relay Summit and the Nationwide Relay For Life Leadership Summit.
