Don Hicks

2018 Volunteer of the Year SORO

Don Hicks was recognized by his peers in the southern region (SORO) of the A.T. in 2018 as their volunteer of the Year. Don joined the Georgia Appalachian Trail Club in 2007 and has been working tirelessly ever since to steward the A.T. in countless roles including Trail Supervisor, Club President, and RPC Chair. Don has completed these jobs effortlessly; his self -effacing demeanor and willingness to be a team player are the keystones of his leadership style. Don moderates, never dictates. He is always willing to do that extra bit for the trail, the Club and the ATC.
