Before founding a nonprofit organization helping impoverished children in Honduras in 1997, Gastonia native Rodger Harrison was a successful commercial real estate executive, pilot, musician and paramedic.All those experiences helped prepare him for the task when he became passionate about finding ways to help the Mayan Chorti Indian children in a place with little or no medical care, education programs or disaster relief systems. Harrison spoke to the Belmont Rotary Club recently about Paramedics for Children International of which he is the founder and president.
