USMS Award Recipient

U.S. Masters Swimming Dorothy Donnelly Service Award

Recipient: Herb Cook
Year: 2011
LMSC: Pacific Northwest

Herb Cook has been noted for his quiet and steady dedication to the Pacific Northwest LMSC. After serving as an At-Large Director on the Board, he was elected to the position of PNA Secretary. While the board discusses and dissects an idea, and often gets off track, Herb managed to succinctly record the discussion and conclusion. He listened always, spoke seldom, and created minutes that were always spot on. Herb traveled to and from the meetings by car and ferry and never missed a meeting nor the opportunity to contribute to the organization.
