Aquatics Awards Breakfast 2012

Wilson Lifeguard being recognized for a job well done.

Tuesday August 28, 2012, we held our Annual Aquatics Awards Breakfast.  This summer we had many successes and we recognized a job well done to many of our employees.  We recognized the Wilson lifeguards for being diligent and rescuing a 13 year old girl out of the pool this summer.  We recognized the Peninsula and Pier staff for being proactive in getting all of the patrons into a safe area while there was police activity right out their front doors.

This summer we also joined with OHSU to work together to test out a youth safety program to help prevent work injuries in the job place.  They called the program PUSH or Promoting U through Safety and Health.  This year the pool winners with the most participation was Peninsula pool, follow by Dishman pool, and Southwest pool took third place.  Thank you everyone for all your participation!

On to the fun part of the morning, staff recognition.  Each pool selects an employee of the summer out of all of their employees, they are voted on by their peers.  This summer’s employees of the summer for each pool are as follows:
