Joe Skibbens

Q. What grade are you in?

A. Twelfth grade at Salisbury High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite class is AP World History. We learn all about regions of the world, throughout the ages, that we really don't get much exposure to. I believe it is vitally important for everyone to learn as much as they can from the past in order to see the trends that are taking place in modern times. Additionally, I've always loved stories and hearing about past people is something I can really invest myself in.
