Harold Rush


In over thirty years as a resident of Mt. Airy, Harold Rush has been involved in many civic, economic, community, and religious organizations. About 25 years ago, he was instrumental in organizing the Upper Wissahickon Civic Association. He has served in a number of different offices in the Association and currently is chairman of the problems committee. In addition, he has served as the liaison between the Association and WMAN.

Harold has long been involved in local politics as a supporter of candidates. He has raised funds, worked in campaigns and been a Judge of elections.

Harold is also an active participant in the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. He has served as an officer of the fraternity and on its scholarship committee for many years. He has also been a strong advocate of helping the youth in Mt. Airy. For many years he worked with the Wissahickon Boys/Girls club.

In addition to these and other civic activities, Harold has been very active in his church which, he says, is “one of the most important” of his activities. He currently serves as treasurer of the Salem Baptist Church in Jenkintown. And he is the Chair of the National Freedom Day Scholarship Program, which provides scholarships to seniors who write the best essay on a particular subject.

Looking back, Harold says, “We live in a good community and I want to do everything I can to keep it that way. His various communal activities, “makes me feel good because I have had a chance to meet everyone in our immediate community. I feel good that people will respond when I ask them to get involved.”
