Charles Merritt

- Equipment Operator

"From an early age I knew that a career involved with the outdoors was what I wanted to pursue. Conservation of our natural resources is also something that has always been important to me. This passion has been focused from becoming an Eagle Scout, Leadership roles in 4-H, and through studying Sustainable Technology at Appalachian State. Many of my hobbies involve our natural resources, so finding a career that helps conserve and restore those just seemed like the natural thing to do. In my spare time I enjoy CrossFit training and fly fishing across the waters of North Carolina and Tennessee. "
