YWCA Aquatics Director Jean Coile was recently recognized by the local chapter of the American Red Cross for 45 Years of Service. Jean began her career with the Asheville-Mountain Area Chapter of the Red Cross in 1964 as a Water Safety Instructor and Lifeguard Instructor. She has served on the Health and Safety Committee and has taught thousands of children how to swim over the years. As a part of our Aquatics Department for over 30 years, Jean has positioned the YWCA of Asheville to be the leading organization providing American Red Cross Aquatic programs in Buncombe County.
On behalf of all of the happy swimmers that have enjoyed learning and exercising in the YWCA pool, thank you for your many years of service, Jean!
