Recruitment Coordinator Stacie Shattenberg Receives Gleason Grant.

Please join us in congratulating Stacie Shattenberg, Recruitment Coordinator serving Divisions 2, 10 and 11, for being honored with a Gleason Grant. The Frederick Area Swim Team (FAST) will receive a check for $250 in her name.

Stacie has been on the Fundraising Committee for the past three years. They have a few large fundraisers each year and raise funds for usage fees for two high school pools for any child that cannot afford the membership fees and for scholarships for families that have hardships so that their children can swim, and toward the building of a new pool.

Stacie also meets and greets new families, making sure that she is present on the desk to answer questions about the team during practice. She helps hand out ribbons after meets to make sure the children get acknowledged, spending many hours in the stands and on the pool deck being an ambassador for the team. She says that FAST is a family and she has been a part of it since her daughter, now 15, was 4 years old.

Our special thanks to Diane Trister Dodge, Founder of Teaching Strategies, a member of the Bright Horizons Education Advisory Board and a friend of the Foundation. Her generous donation in honor of retired Foundation President, Dave Gleason, supports the Gleason Grant Program.
