Leprechaun is currently attending school at Texas A&M to become an electrical engineer. He will be a Junior this fall. This is his seventh summer working at Camp Thurman, and his third summer as a counselor. He loves camp because he gets to have fun with kids while talking about Jesus! Camp really is a special place, he went to camp as a camper for many years and these were some of the best times of his life. So getting to help kids experience that is a huge blessing. While he is not sure where life will take him as he moves on from camp eventually, he knows he wants to move wherever God will use Him!
