Garrett Holt currently resides in Knoxville, Tennessee where he was born and raised. He is the oldest of three siblings, a sister who is seventeen and a brother who is eight. His involvement in service largely began while he was in middle school through work he did with his church youth group. Once he entered high school, he became familiar with service learning as he began participating in such things as Key Club and the Action Counts in Teen Service Class he took as a junior.
As of now, Garrett currently attends West High School where he will graduate from in May of 2012. He is undecided to where he will attend college, but it will likely be at the University of Tennessee, Vanderbilt, UNC Chapel Hill, or the College of Charleston. He plans to study business administration or biology. Before becoming a member of the Youth Advisory Board, Garrett was heavily involved in extracurricular activities at this school. Most important of these was Key Club in which he served for three years as a club officer, a year as lieutenant governor, and currently holds the office of District Governor over the Kentucky-Tennessee district. Through Key Club and his ACTS class, Garrett has participated in a wide array of service projects which have motivated him to continue service as he leaves high school. In his spare time, Garrett enjoys weight-lifting, playing saxophone, and spending time with his family and friends.
