Sam Martin – Retail/Administrative Intern

samanthamarie270@gmail.com

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and got involved in Young Life my freshman year of high school. After going to camp at Castaway I fell in love with Jesus and walked with my Young Life leader as I learned what it meant to have a relationship with God. I attended college at Missouri State University in Springfield and graduated with a degree in Communications in December of 2017. After serving with Young Life in both the field and camping, I am so excited to start this new journey as a year-long! Some of my favorite things are road trips, rain, and good playlists. One thing most people don't know about me is that I have a 5 year old friend who named his pet chicken after me.

Harrison McCaslin – Guest Services Intern

mccaslin.harrison@yahoo.com

My name is Harrison McCaslin. I grew up in a suburb of Dallas, Texas called Richardson. Richardson has a population of right around 100,000 people. I went to school for two years at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay, Wisconsin, which is where I got an Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice. I then transferred to The University of North Texas (Go Mean Green) where I graduated with my Bachelors in Criminal Justice this past December. I got involved with Young Life as a student at UNT. Already walking in a relationship with Jesus, I decided to become a leader in early 2016 and never looked back! Something most people don’t know about me is that I love opera music, I could listen to it all day!

Austin Watts – Guest Services Intern

austinwatts22@gmail.com

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I was a part of Young Life on and off during my later years in high school. After high school I attended the local community college while trying to figure out what I was passionate about. God has since called me to ministry. I ended up transferring and graduating from Ohio Christian University with a focus in ministry. Since high school I have been involved on and off with Young Life. I led for almost two years, went on a mission trip, as well as volunteered at many camps with Young Life over the past 6 years. A fun fact about me is that I love movies and go and see just about every new (worthwhile) movie the night it comes out.
