Olivia got involved with RUF her freshman year at App and continued throughout all four years of college. She loves RUF and is excited to serve on Baylor's campus in the great state of Texas. She's always up for a dance party, loves the game Fish Bowl, and would eat Chickfila three meals a day if she could.


Graham Harmon

RUF Intern

Graham was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, and graduated from the University of South Carolina in May 2019. Despite this, Texas remains his favorite state (both his parents are from there) and will speak to anyone for any length of time about Texas A&M Football (his father’s alma mater). He was a founding father of the Alpha Phi chapter of Beta Upsilon Chi (a Christian fraternity) at the University of South Carolina, and led a Bible study while involved with the fraternity. He loves RUF, Whataburger, Dr. Pepper, and, above all else, Christ, and sharing the news of His love.
