Lois Weir:  1933-2013


 

Our ACAC Coaching Staff and Parent Board would like to take the opportunity to give a brief perspective of who Lois Weir was and what she meant to ACAC through the years. 
 

Lois moved to Oak Ridge in 1955 and was a part of ACAC for over 40 years where she has worked with and developed kids from novice and special needs to high school levels of swimming.  Lois loved children and her life revolved around teaching. She ran the Learn to Swim programs in Oak Ridge for 40 plus years. Coach Andy worked with Lois side by side as part of the ACAC age group staff in 2007-2009. 
 

Lois originally started the Clinton High School Swim Team, was inducted into the Oak Ridge Hall of Fame, and was awarded a lifetime achievement award at her retirement from by Governor Phil Bredeson.  Lois was also active with the Special Olympics, and had our USA Swimming Invitational swim meet named for her. Lois also taught at Glenwood Elementary School for ten years until her retirement in 2008.
