Hi Karen,

I haven't been on the site for awhile, but I was very encouraged to read about you and your interest in starting up a swimming program in South Carolina.  I pray that all is going well for your quest.  I had to the dubious pleasure of attending a swimming program in Lexington, SC back in 2008 where I met John Cruzac, then USA Swimming Developement Coordinator(I don't remember his exact title), but he was a VIP with USA Swimming.  Marilyn Jeffcoat was the one sponsoring the program and she has very close ties with some of SC's finest, and I am sure she could be very resourceful in helping you achieve your plight.  I pray that your success will be imminent, and from reading your profile, you certainly have all the qualifications one needs to achieve such goal.  I have relocated to Montgomery, AL, where I pray that I too, have much more of a success in reaching our children and their parents in the development of their minds,  informing them of the importance of swimming.  Please do keep me posted.  Take Care and may God find favor in your accomplishments.  Darrick aka dswimmerman

Thank you, Karen, for the up-beat response you made. Yes, DAP is most unique with like-minded aquatic professionals. We now know who the majority of the players are in the world of diviersity in aquatics. It is a real start, and keep in mind that every success has a humble beginning. I see growth and awareness here, and I also look forward to seeing you make your mark in our field. Take care.

Welcome to DAP, Karen. We need more professionaals like yourself in aquatics. There are probably more Black doctors and lawyers than swimming professionals in the USA, and we wonder why swimming is on the low end of prioity in learning life skills! Go figure, right?
