As we enter the final quarter of the calendar (and fiscal for us) year, we find ourselves in a similar yet different situation as an organization. Our summer is by far the busiest part of the year and when we spend most of our financial resources. As non-profits typically look towards the fundraising-friendly fourth quarter, […]
A couple of weeks ago I sat in the lobby of GOAT talking and praying with a group of “friendterns”, as I prepared to experience my first trip as a new member of the GOAT family. I was super excited and a little nervous—not really knowing what to expect. We were about to hang out […]
If you’ve been around GOAT at all over the past few years, you’ve no doubt met Anna. She’s been a fixture around GOAT for a while now, and this summer she’s been working with us as our Program Coordinator. Helping train interns, lead trips, coordinate food and gear, and basically keeping us all in line. […]
Will is a Greenville native, but is currently living the farthest from GOAT of any of our current interns. Will is currently at Texas A&M and will be joining the Navy after his time there. If you ever need to know about anything obscure, ask Will, he definitely knows all about it.
Mary-Neel is a rising senior at Clemson University and a Greenville native. At Clemson she works for C.O.R.E (Clemson Outdoor Recreation and Education) so she’s ready for whatever we throw at her. She also hates when we tell people this, but she’s a Clemson cheerleader, so you can find her on the sidelines on Saturdays […]
Kirsten is spending her summer at GOAT before she begins medical school in Greenville this fall. We don’t know when Kirsten sleeps, she always awake reading and writing. She’s never met someone who’s not her friend, so if you get a chance to meet Kirsten, we promise she’ll say something outrageous.
Katherine is a Greenville native but currently in school at College of Charleston. She’s a familiar face, as she’s been climbing here during her college breaks. She also speaks five different languages. Katherine is the happiest morning person ever, which is great since she’s helping run all of our climbing camps this summer.
Jim comes to GOAT from Belmont University by way of Kenya. Jim is a missionary kid and was born in Kenya. His childhood babysitter was actually a Maasai warrior, so good luck telling a cooler childhood story than Jim. If you have the chance to meet Jim this summer, you’re sure to experience one of […]
Evan is a sophomore at Bob Jones University and wears cut-off shorts better than anybody on our team. He’s a Greenville native and one of the youngest on our team this summer – but he knows his stuff. The Lord lead Evan to GOAT through some wild circumstances, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
What Dai lacks in height, she makes up for in attitude. Dai is a rising senior at Clemson University studying Parks, Recreation & Tourism Management. If you ever meet Dai in person, we suggest meeting her after 6pm when she claims to have “night hair”
