Local teen heading to California for Grammy's Camp

Posted: Updated:

16-year-old Harrison Jones is about to have an experience of a lifetime.

He is one of 136 students who have recently been selected to attend this year's Grammy's Camp that will be at the University of Southern California July 14-24. He is the only representative from Alabama.

The Mountain Brook teen is one of eight drummers that will be at the camp.

"I just feel honored," Jones said. "I feel like I'm representing my state."

He views his upcoming trip as both a learning experience and a challenge.

"It just feels kind of good that I've accomplished something like that," he said.
