Where are they now?- Michael McGarity

Where Are They Now, Allison McGarity

For this weeks “Where Are They Now,” I chose Michael McGarity. Michael graduated from ECCHS in 1989. Michael was an active participant at ECCHS. He served on the football team all four years, and was even chosen to go to Japan through the Elberton Sister City Exchange Program.

Michael and his wife, Lisa, have one daughter, Allison. Allison is a sophomore at ECCHS, and Lisa works in the office at Star Granite and Bronze. Michael now owns his own business, Harmony Blue Granite Company. Harmony Blue Granite Company was started by my great-grandfather. WIth that being said, it has been up and running for many years. Michael and his family had an amazing opportunity this summer. They were able to host a Japanese exchange student through the Elberton Sister City Exchange Program. The opportunity was amazing since Michael went when he was in high school.

Although Michael does not attend ECCHS anymore, he still has a very big role in the school. Michael is on the True Blue Board. The True Blue Board is in charge of working concessions at all sports events, with many more roles. Despite his busy work schedule, he strives to attend all of Allison’s softball games and tennis matches. I am glad I was able to give you a clearer view on Michael and his accomplishments throughout the years.
