Jimmy Skaggs

Jimmy Skaggs is probably one of the Pullum YMCA’s most active users. A member of the Y for nine years, he uses the facility twice a day on most days. Jimmy was drawn to the Y by his desire to fulfill his need to work out. He loves interacting with the friendly staff at the Welcome Center and enjoying a nice cup of coffee. Jimmy feels that he has improved his health and gained more stamina since joining the Y. His favorite activities at the Y are riding Spinning bikes and enjoying the pool.

Jimmy is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. He moved to Navarre in 1955, where he and his wife, Joyce, started their family. He and Joyce have been happily married for 70 years this month, and they have three sons. Jimmy says that one thing he really enjoys in his life in Navarre is socializing with his friends from church.

Jimmy and Joyce are also YMCA Annual Campaign donors. When asked what motivates them to give, Jimmy says, “I appreciate the work the Y does within the community, and it is a nice place to be.”
