GRIZ THE WORLD OVER. Diane Williams Rankin ’79 recently visited the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, with her family. On her way home via Paris airport, Rankin heard “Go Griz!” from another Griz-gear wearer, only to board the plane and hear the same thing from a flight attendant, who shared she was a Montana girl.
