Harrison teenager achieves dream,
ministers through love of music
HARRISON – “I have a dream,” writes Jordan Whitmer, who attends Eagle Heights Baptist Church in Harrison. “This is a rather large dream. Something that not everybody gets to accomplish in their lifetime. I want to play in the big leagues.” Whitmer goes on to chronicle how that dream came true on July 23, 2013, at Chase Field in Arizona as – for the first time ever – he played the national anthem on his trumpet for a major league baseball team. Now 16 years old and a junior at Harrison High School, Whitmer has gone on to achieve this dream several times over, playing this year for the Kansas City Royals, the Cleveland Indians, the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros.
