Will Skipper

  • My name is Will Skipper
  • I’m from Jackson, Mississippi
  • I’m currently in the midst of transitioning from high school and into college, where I hope to attain a Pre-Medicine/Biology degree!
  • I was a Falling Creek camper for 4 years (‘16-’19).
  • This will be my first year on staff at Falling Creek.
  • I’ll be teaching basketball and music
  • I am happiest whenever I am practicing or playing my sports, whether football, basketball, or discus! If I am not doing any of those, however, I will usually be playing chess, practicing my piano playing, studying my languages, or reading a book.
  • My favorite ice cream flavor is cookies and cream.
  • How do I “recharge my batteries?” Often after a challenging or exhausting experience, I sit down at my piano and practice some pieces. This takes my mind off of whatever it was that was draining me and clears my head to move forward with my day.
  • A fun fact about me is that in total, I have broken 14 bones. Every one of my fingers, an ankle, a wrist, and two vertebrae in my back have all been broken over my years playing sports.
  • This summer, I’m most looking forward to learning about Falling Creek from a staff perspective! Having been a camper myself for four years, this will be my first year as a staff member, so I’m thrilled to rejoin the Falling Creek community again!
