The following was written by a former GWS swimmer for a college assignment reflecting on people who had been an influence in his life:

 

"I remember Coach Tom with fondness. Swim team was an awesome time of my life, and while it was a short period, I experienced a lot of growth. As I began swimming I remember coming home completely discouraged. Although I was a 7th grader I had to swim with the younger kids, because I was in no way fast enough to keep up with my own age group. Swim team was hard, and I wanted to quit. I remember one day after practice Coach Tom approached me, and complimented me. I was confused at first, until I realized what was happening. He was complimenting my willingness to stick with swimming even though I was struggling and not as good as kids my own age. That was who Coach Tom was. He was able to see in me a discipline, and motivation that I was unaware I possessed. Because of that I wanted to keep working at it, and try to keep getting better as a swimmer. As a result I started becoming not just disciplined at swimming but in life as well. I was influenced to become the kind of person that doesn’t quit. All because a Coach took the time to compliment a 7th Grader on an attribute he did not even know he had."   David H.
