Mr. Max Bloomingburg, 
Youth Intern

I moved to Hattiesburg right after my freshman year of high school. I started coming to Heritage my sophomore year was very involved with the youth group. I played baseball and served as the Co-President for First Priority in my time at Oak Grove High School. I graduated from Oak Grove in 2013 and started attending Mississippi State University in the fall of 2013. I just recently graduated from Mississippi State in May of 2017 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. I aspire to attend medical school. I look forward to working with the youth group here at Heritage!
