Employee
of the
Month


Nicolette Cooper and Susan Principe

Nicolette joined our lifeguarding team in July of 2017.  Nicolette is very reliable and can always be counted on by her co-workers.  She is always willing to tackle new challenges and is training to teach swim lessons.  When our facility was faced with a shortage of a 5:00 am shift, she willingly offered to work a few mornings a week.  Nicolette is also a “cleaning warrior” and spends any free time ensuring our facility looks good.  Thank you Nicolette for your flexibility and hard work!


Susan has worked for the Aquatic Center as a swim instructor and cashier for over a year.  This fall, Susan also joined our lifeguard team.  Susan has an excellent “can do” attitude and brings positive energy to work with her every day regardless of which hat she is wearing.

Susan has a special knack for working with children and has a deep love for teaching swim lessons, she enjoys teaching group lessons and private lessons.  As a lifeguard, Susan is very attentive to safety and works well as a team member.  Additionally, Susan pays special attention to cleaning and strives to keep our facility looking nice and clean.  Thank you Susan for all you do for the Aquatic Center!
