We are thrilled to announce that Jim Goodrum will be returning to Falling Creek in January as Staffing Director. His cousin Tom Goodrum introduced Jim to camp in 1979 and he was a camper for seven years and CIT for two years. Jim is a graduate of Mercer University in Macon, GA and while he attended, worked at FCC as a Catawba Tribe cabin counselor and activity leader. In the summer of 1993, Jim moved from the swim docks to begin his tenure as Program Director. In 1994, Jim joined the full-time camp staff as Assistant Director / Program Director until 2002. He returned home to Georgia in 2002 to work at Mercer University as Assistant Director of Admissions and Recreational Sports and Wellness. At Mercer, Jim met his wife Kristi and they have been married for two years.

Most recently, Jim has been working for Fickling & Company selling residential real estate. Marisa and I are excited Jim is returning to share from his 23 years of Falling Creek experience. Jim’s passion for Falling Creek and it’s mission, combined with his knowledge of camp operations, sets the stage for his primary focus with FCC’s staff and alumni development.

Merry Christmas!
