Two Michigan LMSC Members are Recognized for Their Contributions at the 2015 USMS Convention

Members of U.S. Masters Swimming don't just confine their particpation to the pool. There are many volunteer opportunities for their talent, expertise and generosity. USMS recognizes the commitment of those who give back with the Dorothy Donnelly Service Award, honoring one of USMS's outstanding volunteers. The award recognizes those who contributions stand out in service to local, regional, and national programs. Up to 15 people are selected each year with nominations coming from Local Masters Swimming Committees, clubs, and individuals. This year's award recipients included our very own Denise Brown.
Also, congratulations to the coach of the Grand Traverse Masters program, Kathy Coffin-Sheard. Kathy received the Kerry O'Brien Coaching Award; an award that was initiated by USMS in 2008 to recognize USMS registered coaches who are building our membership in communities throughout our country. Her congratulatory letter from Coach O'Brien included the following: "I believe this is one of our greatest callings as Masters Coaches - to value every member equally by investing the same amount of effort and focus into their goals for being there. It is very evident by the praise of your members that this is what is felt throughout your program."
