South Bend, Indiana
All-Star Guard, Dallas Wings
The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County first welcomed Skylar through its doors as a first-grader. From the start, she never wanted to leave. Her friends were there, she got to play, have fun and just be a kid. And she could hoop all day, putting up shot after shot. While numerous colleges recruited her, Skylar chose to stay in South Bend and attend Notre Dame. She went on to become a four-time college All-American and earn a bachelor’s degree in business from the university. Now an All-Star for the WNBA’s Dallas Wings, Skylar is just as active off the court. She founded Skylar’s Scholars, which honors teenagers for academic achievements. She also created Shoot 4 The Sky Basketball Camp Tour, which helps kids ages 7 to 18 improve their basketball skills.
