Harrison is a tight-nit community. There are many people who have many different opinions and beliefs but everyone gets along. In my 4 years of high school I truly have not witnessed one account of bullying, the school treated my special needs sister very well, and the school does its best to get young adults prepared for the real world. The upkeep of Harrison is generally nice. Although it could be prettier, it's a work in progress. I haven't met any unpleasant workers at any store, restaurant, gas station, etc. Harrison's community is always changing but one thing is for sure the old time politeness has always stayed the same.

I like Harrison and have lived here my whole life thus far. It has always had a hometown feel. However, lately it is becoming more industrialized with more housing developments, restaurants, and storage places. It feels like these are taking away from the hometown feel. Also, more vape and “drug” stores are popping up. I feel this is not going to attract good people to the area. Overall I like Harrison and how it’s been for me growing up; I just have concerns with the direction it may be going in the future.
The community is nice, but there isn't much to do in terms of entertainment. There is plenty of places for groceries, but not many clothing stores to shop. There is plenty of fast-food places to eat, but not to many sit down restaurants to have a nice dinner at.
