Erin Sullivan Receives Dorothy Donnelly Award
Erin Sullivan received the Dorothy Donnelly Service Award in 2008. The work Erin did to make Masters swimmers attending the USA Swimming Olympic Trials feel welcome was impressive. Months in advance she posted information on the USMS discussion forums and contacted swimmers she knew were attending. She organized workout space for each day of the trials, convinced the Nebraska LMSC to cover the cost of pool time, and lined up coaches to cover the workouts. In addition to workouts, Erin provided the more than 40 Masters attendees with a list of area restaurants and contact information for other Masters swimmers in town.
Erin Sullivan’s initiative and follow through is a fine example of service to USMS.
