Harry graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics with a minor in English. He earned a Masters Degree of Religious Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Education. He then served as a bi-vocational Minister serving local churches and teaching at Texas State Technical College in Waco.
He received his commission into Civil Air Patrol as a Captain and retired as a Lt. Colonel after serving 35 years.

As an educator he taught Outdoor Power Equipment in the Diesel Technology Department at TSTC Waco. His school became the 14th school in the nation to become EETC Accredited. He received EETC Certification in Four Stroke, Two Stroke, Electrical, Hydraulics and Drivelines, Compact Diesels and Generators. Twice his school received the EETC School of the Year Award. In 2017 he received the EETC Spirit Award. Harry has served on the Certification Committees for Two-Stroke, Four-Stroke, Electrical and Hydraulics and Drivelines. He has served on the EETC Board of Directors and presently serves as President.

After certifying as a Master Service Technician, in 2001 he became the first educator (non-Briggs and Stratton employee) to be certified as a Master Instructor for Briggs and Stratton. After his Stihl Bronze and Silver Certifications, in 2005 he was one of four educators to receive factory training at Virginia Beach.

Harry has been very active in SkillsUSA as an advisor with students competing at National Leadership and Skills Conference each year from 1995 to 2016. In 2007 he fulfilled his SkillsUSA State Director Certification. The following year he received the SkillsUSA Outstanding Carreer and Technical Educator Award.

The "Two-Stroke Engines" textbook was written to educate students and technicians in the Class III, IV, V handheld outdoor power equipment engines. The textbook was unveiled at the EETC Annual Conference in Virginia Beach in 2017. Harry is the first to recognize that he did not achieve his education on his own. Credit goes to his very first teacher, Albert Herron, who, in 1999, drove up one and a half hours from Texas Outdoor Power Equipment (ECHO Distributor and EETC Member) in Georgetown, Texas to Waco to be Harry's "Guest Lecturer" for his night classes. He did this several times, and has been a mentor ever since.
