Swim Lessons Save Lives

Swim Lessons Save Lives

 

Glenda (on the left) has spent most of her life terrified of the water. That's what three near-drownings will do to a person. But earlier this year she decided she was tired of the fear and wanted to enjoy the summer vacation she has scheduled with family.

So she signed up for private swim lessons and got paired with our instructor, Heather. "Do you know what I did last week?" Glenda asked. "I jumped in to the deep end! Without a float device!" Glenda is so excited for the progress she has made and credits Heather for being both an excellent instructor and an excellent motivator. Now she is looking forward to her vacation and says "I know I will be safe."
