The subject of this week’s Take 5 on the Auburn University homepage is Will Gibson, a senior in industrial and systems engineering and a Camp War Eagle head counselor, who has overcome tragedy to become one of Auburn's most dedicated and involved students. After losing his mother at a young age, and then his father only a few years later, Will has turned devastating personal events into a comeback story that is just beginning. A native of Old Hickory, Tennessee, Will grew up watching Auburn football as a child. His dedication to the Tigers was so strong that from 2008-11, Will and a family member would make the 12-hour trek every Saturday to and from Auburn to attend each home football game. From his role as a fan to now a student, Will has fully embraced the Auburn family through serving as a director of Freshman Forum; selected as co-director of Auburn SGA's BIG Event 365; representing Auburn on campus tours to potential students and parents as a student recruiter; and becoming a Camp War Eagle head counselor.
