MAXWELL EXCELLENCE AWARD
From the 65th Annual Husky Invitational: Thank you for allowing a few moments to recognize an outstanding volunteer at this meet. Every two months, USA Swimming, in cooperation with Maxwell Awards and Swimming World magazine, recognizes an outstanding official for their exemplary service to the sport of competitive swimming in the US. Tonight, we would like to congratulate the January 2014 recipient from Pacific Northwest Swimming, Mrs. Teri White, for receiving the Maxwell Excellence Award. Teri is working this entire weekend as the Chief Judge Team Lead, and is a well known official throughout the Pacific Northwest and, indeed, throughout the country. She participates in LSC, High School, NCAA, Masters, Special Olympics and National championship meets. In 2012 she was chosen to officiate at the Olympic Trials. One of her paramount legacies is her passion for educating and mentoring those fortunate enough to work alongside her. Teri works tirelessly to expand and improve the pool of officials that serve the athletes and coaches.
