Recipients of The Capt. Ransom J. Arthur M.D. Award
|Speech prepared by President Jeff Moxie.
It is with great pleasure that U.S. Masters Swimming recognizes this year's Ransom J. Arthur Award recipient Lynn Hazlewood.
Lynn is truly one of U.S. Masters Swimming's unsung heroes and has been fondly called the soul of the organization. She is involved with swimming for all the right reasons—love of the sport and she is one of the unique adult athletes that pursue fitness and competitive opportunities.
Over the years Lynn's contributions to U.S. Masters swimming are many. On the national level, Lynn currently chairs the Open Water Committee. She has also served as chair of the Editorial Committee, Open Water Task Force, and Branding Task Force. One of Lynn's many strengths is the ability to effectively communicate within the group she is leading. She has a unique ability to make those around her feel valued in their contribution to the final product. Lynn also served on U.S. Masters Swimming executive committee as the Zone Chair and has been a valued member of the Communications Committee, Long Distance Committee, Publication Management Committee, and the Records and Tabulations Committee.
Lynn also chaired the Transition Team that was instrumental in allowing U.S. Masters Swimming to take editorial ownership of our member magazine. She continues to contribute to our communications strategy by organizing and publishing web content for usms.org and as editor of the Calendar of Events. Lynn is also active within her LMSC. She has held various positions over the years, including club President, Vice President, Social Chair, Membership Chair, and LMSC Sanctions Chair and board member. Lynn was also a co-founder and is meet registrar of the Jim McDonnell Lake Swims, which is now in it's twenty third year.
Lynn is the epitome of a dedicated volunteer to U.S. Masters Swimming as shown by these few examples we have talked about. She is often the first person we think about when a new challenge faces U.S. Masters Swimming that needs an objective, reliable and knowledgeable leader—and while Lynn does not seek recognition for her work we are proud to give her that recognition as the 2010 Ransom J. Arthur Award winner.

Recipients of The Ted Haartz U.S. Masters Swimming Staff Appreciation Award
|George has been the USMS Registration Committee chair since 2005. During the summer of 2007 he was very involved with the development and testing of the on line registration system. He led the weekly calls with the software developers where discussions of problems and enhancements occurred and he continues to be an active participant. George developed the On Line Tutorials which assist the LMSC registrars with instructions on how to use the program, create reports, and fix errors. He continues to monitor and correct billing and invoice problems that sometimes occur when a member makes a mistake while registering. George's assistance and support has been tremendously valuable to the USMS staff and the success of the USMS on line registration program.|
