Jeanne Seidler Receives Dorothy Donnelly Award
Applying tech talents to swimming
Jeanne Seidler received the Dorothy Donnelly Service Award in 2008. She has been a member of USMS since 2000, but her involvement with swimming started when her children were in age group programs in Wisconsin. She dug right in as an avid volunteer and supporter. Using her technological talents, she designed a computer program for her children’s local swim program to use in running their meets more efficiently.
When Jeanne’s children were grown, she took swimming into her own hands, joined Masters swimming, and eventually devoted herself to the same kinds of volunteer efforts with the Masters as she had for age group swimming. She has become a fixture at WI Masters meets, selflessly operating the computer systems at many meets while compromising her own warm ups and warm downs and races in between operations at the computer desk. Not only that, but she has taken it upon herself to handle the LMSC’s Top Ten compilations and has done such an outstanding job that she has been asked to take on the National top times / meet results coordinator.
Jeanne Seidler provides exemplary service to USMS and is deserving of the USMS Service Award.
