Walmart and Jerry Harris Team Up to Share College Picks Worth Cheering For
Walmart Corporate | August 12, 2020
This back-to-college season, we're thrilled to partner with the breakout star of "Cheer", Jerry Harris, to share all his back-to-college must-haves.
Walmart’s Vice President of Home Management, Patricia Snyder, had the chance to interview Jerry about returning to college this year.
Why did you choose to partner with Walmart for Back to College?
I love Walmart - I always have! I am so excited for the opportunity to partner with them to help inspire other students heading back to college this fall.
What are your must-have back-to-college picks from Walmart?
My picks include a new laptop (must have), a wireless charging alarm clock, a new Smart TV with Roku from onn., a cute, comfy comforter from Mainstays and a phone sanitizer like the PhoneSpa Phone & Accessory UV-C Sanitizer (gotta stay safe!). Those are the essentials!
You’re known for your mat talks. What would you say to freshmen heading to college this fall?
Always look forward to the future! The class of 2020 is the toughest group out there! You’re making lemonade out of lemons, and it’s so inspiring.
Things look a lot different this school year for students around the country. What are your tips for fellow students on staying active and connected with friends in a socially distant world?
I love walking. I’ll put in headphones and walk miles just listening to some good music. Being outside and moving is a great way to stay healthy and keep your mind clear. I also video call my friends and teammates literally every day. Just because we aren't physically together doesn't mean we can't be close!
