The "Embracing Responsibility Scholarship" – Paving the Way for Lifeguards and Swim Instructors!

The Embracing Responsibility Scholarship was established by the Town of Riverview to recognize the contributions of Barb Hurlbut, who served as the former Aquatics Coordinator for over three decades. Inspired by her enduring legacy of mentoring lifeguards and instilling the values of water safety, this scholarship is designed to support the post secondary pursuits of lifeguards and swim instructors at the Pat Crossman Memorial Aquatic Center. 

Each year, the Embracing Responsibility Scholarship awards $2,000 to a single deserving individual who meets the eligibility requirements. 

Open to all lifeguards and swim instructors currently employed at the pool, this scholarship is a symbol of our commitment to their success.
