WonKee Moon Receives 2008 Dorothy Donnelly Service Award
"Positive and encouraging"
WonKee Moon received the Dorothy Donnelly Service Award in 2008. He has been a USMS member for nearly ten years, about five of them as a member of District of Columbia Aquatics Club (DCAC). He has served as captain and as an assistant coach, coordinated DCAC’s annual open water swim to benefit the local HIV and AIDS community, and built partnerships with the DC community by representing DCAC at many locally based community events. WonKee has shown his commitment to USMS by organizing DCAC participation in events such as USMS nationals and zones meets, open water championships, “top ten” challenges, and postal swims.
What makes WonKee especially deserving of this award in 2008 is his outstanding contribution to our team, USMS, and the international aquatics community when he served as Chairperson of the International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics (IGLA) Championships that were held in Washington, DC on June 18 - 22, 2008. Over the past two years, WonKee volunteered an immense amount of time to this endeavor and did so with an unbelievably positive and encouraging attitude. WonKee Moon’s service to the local, national, and international swimming community makes him especially deserving of this award.
