Andy Killebrew grew up in Lexington, NC and says that he was fortunate enough to have two parents that stoked twin fires for education and adventure in him from a young age. Andy spent much of his youth buried in books, locked in play outside with his older brother and friends, and traveling with his family. In high school he dove into extracurricular activities, playing trombone in the wind ensemble, participating on the soccer, basketball, and tennis teams, volunteering, and competing in Quiz Bowl.
After graduation, Andy attended Wake Forest University where he majored in English with minors in Writing and Economics. He says that his college experience consisted of rigorous academics, intensely stimulating relationships, and significant fun. A few stated highlights were being on the club basketball team, writing for the newspaper, and studying abroad for a semester. He began working at Falling Creek during the summers and spent the last several on staff. He identified the core values of service, community, personal development, and love as contributing to his connection with camp.
Since leaving Wake Forest, Andy has worked and traveled around the country and world. He spent a fall in South Lake Tahoe, CA working at the Stanford Sierra Conference Center and lived in London during spring ’22 as an assistant for Wake Forest’s Worrell House program. He was elated for the opportunity to join the FCC full time team in 2022.Email Andy
