Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg visits LAPS

On Thursday, March 9th, Mayor Tecklenburg took a break from the office to pay LAPS an extended visit at the Martin Luther King pool in downtown Charleston! Children from Ms. Hazel's kindergarten class at Charleston Progressive Academy were taking lessons when the Mayor and his colleagues, Mike Whack and Rick Jerue stopped in for an introduction to the program.  Mayor Tecklenburg discussed the program curriculum and skill attainment data with Program Director, Shannon O'Brien and spoke with the instructors, lifeguards, children, and their teacher. Mayor Tecklenburg was extremely impressed with the program as a whole, and says he'll do whatever he can to make the program continue to succeed.
