What does the program mean to you?

To me it is the best overall big swimming college program in our wonderful water-loving state of Michigan. It developed me and so many young student-athletes to become the best they can be in and out of the pool. I was fortunate to swim at MSU in the 1980’s. Through the program I grew as a student-athlete tremendously in ability and courage and work ethic. I tore my ACL as a freshman but through the support and love of this team I learned to persevere and achieve through this and other challenges. I have many swimmer friends who swam at other big schools but none had the wonderful bond that this program gives to those lucky enough to swim and dive at MSU.

Why did you choose MSU?

I wanted to continue to grow as a student athlete at a strong Michigan state university. MSU showed me they were a family of athletes away from home. It was also a chance for me to swim again with my sister Sally. What a wonderfully strong and balanced program for the many swimming families in our state.

Biggest life-lesson you are learning/learned from MSU?

Perseverance, courage, true support of each other and self discipline
