    2019 Chattahoochee Riverkeeper Volunteer of the Year, Chattahoochee Atlanta General Manager, River Rescue Pro Certified, Wilderness First Responder (WFR)

George is Nantahala Outdoor Center’s General Manager of Chattahoochee Operations and has been with NOC for six years now. As part of the NOC team in Metro Atlanta and Roswell, George has had the opportunity to break new ground in Atlanta and introduce a new area to exciting river adventures. George was named the 2019 Chattahoochee Riverkeeper Volunteer of the Year and is River Rescue Pro and Wilderness First Responder Certified.

The Roswell stretch of the Chattahoochee holds special memories to George – it is where he met his wife and was later married. George’s adventure-loving sons can often be found hanging out on the river with him. George loves anything outdoors – hiking, biking, climbing, camping, snowboarding – you name it. In fact, he is even NOC’s four-time Tube Racing champion in Single, Double, and Novelty categories!
