Hello new friends and family,
My name is Aidan Harr, and I am going into my Senior year at Kent State University studying Education with a focus in History. I am a graduate of New Philadelphia High School where I played many different sports, as well as being involved in extracurricular activities throughout the community. Currently, I live in the Kent area, and I am really excited to work with all the kids this summer at the Lovelight Program. This spring I spent a lot of time with some of my new friends who are already in the program and that I hope to see this summer. These kids as well as all the new faces we are about to see sparked my passion for teaching. I also spend my time working with kids in the Tuscarawas area running Soccer training sessions for all ages through my own organization, New Philadelphia Futbol Club. I am thrilled for all the opportunities we will have this summer to make a difference in our own communities and I look forward to serving you and your families this year,
Happy Summer and Best,
