                     Editor’s Note: Representing the chapter as Spotlight is Edison Carrick.
      From the hometown of Calhoun, GA, Edison is a fifth year student and is pursuing his
      BS EE. Having served the chapter as chaplain and pool manager, Edison was selected as
      Spotlight because of his commitment to the house (specifically taking care of the pool for
      the last few years) as well as just being an all-around good guy. For fun, he enjoys hiking,
      horticulture, and web design.
