The following is a note shared to Facebook from White House swim coaches Jessica Watson and Julie Thorp. Mrs. Watson gave us permission to share with White House BDP and the community.
It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the end of our swimming program at White House High School. When I started this program, my dream was to see it through for many years…and then the world changed.
We have waited up until the last minute to analyze every angle to see how to make it work, but without a pool, it’s not possible. Our hearts are heavy as we have poured so much into this program, as have you. And for that- thank you. We have been shown so much love and we are very thankful for each of you.
Thank you for the laughter, hugs, cheers, tears, challenges, and triumphs throughout the last 4 years. We will miss this family tremendously. The legacy started, and ended, with all of us.
