Charles received his B.A. in Journalism from the University of South Florida. Charles started out creating a new multi-media section of the website to focus on the area around the Edwight mine and Marsh Fork Elementary School. After much excellent work, Charles took on bottom lining the Journey Up Coal River website and currently maintains it. He also works to keep Aurora Lights integrated and involved in other social and environmental justice movements.This photo is of Charles taking a break (very rare) in the Teton Mountain Range’s Hurricane Pass, Wyoming, while on a backpacking trip; the Grand Teton behind him.
