Holler, No More

Serenity for Chris Slone exists within the lush space of Pert Creek Holler in Whitesburg, KY where he was born and raised; a mining town where physical labor is a constant and calluses on your hands serve as a testament to your worth. With support from his family, Chris has actively chosen to break away from the generations long cycle of mining in an attempt to write his unique chapter in the Slone Family history. In May 2013, he graduated from Eastern Kentucky University making him the first member of the Slone Family to receive a Master's Degree. Chris ultimately desires to return to his life and family in the holler, but cannot, because opportunities in his chosen field of Software Engineering do not yet exist.
