Niko Tila has been a lifeguard with the Astoria Aquatic Center for three years. During his time as a lifeguard, Niko has shown a strong aptitude as a first responder. He has also progressed as a natural leader among his peers, consistently going above and beyond to assist in coaching his peers when practicing lifesaving skills and always leading by example. Niko was promoted to a lead guard in May of this year and has continued to excel as a leader.
Recently, in the Aquatic Center's quarterly unannounced audit, Niko received scores of "EXCEEDS standards" in all categories of the audit. His leadership during the skills testing scenario were so exemplary, he was given a special recognition of “outstanding rescuer." We are very proud of Niko’s achievement and greatly appreciate his leadership as a lifeguard.
