Austin George, Allen Community College sophomore and the sole returning staffer for The Allen Flame, grew up approximately an hour and twenty minutes from here in the suburban area of Gardner, Kan. As a child, he resided with his mother and father, alongside his brother and sister, finding himself to be the middle child. He attends Allen on a soccer scholarship.

George aspires to be a communications broadcast major, a passion that has been fueled by his aunt, Sara Haines, a former “TODAY” show contributing correspondent. Haines has been an influential person in George’s life and even presented him with the opportunity to be backstage on the show, meet the cast and get to be on the show, though briefly, at only 15 years old.

As a young boy, George had the opportunity to visit the Bahamas, as well as Florida, many times, as he has family that in Florida. He enjoys traveling and playing soccer whenever possible. He hopes to contribute to the Allen Flame in any way he can to make this year’s paper the best it can be.
