Harrison grew up in the Atlanta area and spent most of his summers at a sleepaway camp in North Carolina that stoked his love for the outdoors. Later, he worked at that same summer camp while attending Young Harris College in North Georgia. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Outdoor Leadership with an Appalachian Studies minor. Harrison was also fortunate enough to take his own gap semester after high school. After working two summers and a GAP Year at Eagle View Ranch, Harrison is so excited to use his experience with SOAR for another year with the gappers. Harrison knows that his own experience with ADHD and learning differences diagnoses, as well as a similar life path to many students, will allow him to identify with and help them build skills to use in their lives after SOAR. Harrison spends his free time climbing, backpacking, and exploring the Wild West of Wyoming when he is not working.
Harrison is a certified Wilderness First Responder and Waterfront Lifeguard.
