Sally & Larry Johnson
Sally graduated from Jacksonville State University in 1993 with a bachelors degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. She started at Skyline in 1977 as a camper.
Her love for children and camp led her to be a counselor and later to become a Director and part owner in 1997. Sally oversees the running of camp and it’s programs and works with the Skyline Foundation.
Larry graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1992. While there he was a member of the FSU Flying High Circus. He joined the Skyline staff in 1995 and built the Skyline Circus and it has been “flying high” since. Larry directs the winter groups program when camp is not in session and coordinates the CampStuff program during the summer.

Alisa Gillis has been a part of Skyline since the summer of 1996. She has filled many roles on staff such as Head Counselor, Trips Director, and Program Director. Alisa now serves as Summer Director and works throughout the year to recruit and prepare for the summer. She has most enjoyed seeing the difference Skyline has made in many campers lives and watching many grow into counselors and dedicated young women. Alisa earned her bachelor’s degree in Biology at Mississippi College and went on to earn her Master’s of Education from UTC. She has worked in the arts, teaching, and children’s ministry, and enjoys bringing that work experience to the camp setting.

Sarah Kate Donnelly
After a quick trip through Mentone and an impromptu camp tour upon seeing a sign for a girl’s camp, Sarah Kate’s adventures at Skyline began! In 1999, she kicked off her first summer as a camper, eventually grew to become a Junior and Senior Counselor, and is now thrilled to serve as our Chaplain and Trips Director. Hailing from Tallahassee, Florida, our tried and true Seminole graduated from The Florida State University in 2010 with a degree in Recreation Administration. While at FSU, she performed with the FSU Flying High Circus (just like Larry!) on the Mexican Cloud Swing, Flying Trapeze and much more. Sarah Kate lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee and does not mind the humidity change at all.
