Lucas Hering promoted to South Facility Manager!


Lucas is a native to Huntsville, but spent some of his younger years living in Brazil.  Currently, he is pursuing his degree in Business Administration. Lucas began climbing about a year ago at Athletic Club Alabama as a member, but started working as a rock wall instructor before being promoted to our management staff.
