Lifeguards are the heroes of our pool and splash pad! 💦 Today is International Lifeguard Appreciation Day and we're thankful to have these guards currently on our team keeping people safe. Megan ☀️ is an all around rockstar on the Pontiac Parks + Rec team. Megan works as a lifeguard, teaches swim lessons, works as a front desk attendant at the Rec Center, coaches PeeWee sports, assists in gymnastics classes, works at the Gilding Arts Museum, worked the Livingston County Food Pantry during the COVID-19 pandemic, and helps with some of our special events. Megan currently attends Heartland Community College. We love having Megan on our staff because she is a true jack-of-all trades! Keely 🏊‍♀️ has worked for Pontiac Parks + Rec as a lifeguard for FOUR summers now! During her employment, she has also helped with special events, taught swim lessons, and worked as a front desk attendant. Keely currently attends Northwestern University. We love Keely's energy and good spirits and are so happy she has been on staff with our team this Summer! Lindsey⛱ has worked for Pontiac Parks + Rec as a lifeguard, front desk attendant, worked the Livingston County Food Pantry during the COVID-19 pandemic, taught swim lessons, and has helped with some of our special events. Lindsey just graduated from PTHS and will be attending Lincoln Land Community College to play basketball this Fall. We know she is off to do great things! Besides being stellar employees, these ladies are also responsible, kind, and always have the best attitudes. We are thankful for all these certified lifeguards do for our team and community! #internationallifeguardappreciationday
