At the recently held USA Swimming’s annual convention, our very own SI Swimming General Chair, Debbie Baldwin, was elected as the new Secretary/Treasurer of the Western Zone of USA Swimming.  The Western Zone compromises 17 LSCs from 13 different western states, so this is a significant position and a well-deserved recognition of Debbie’s many contributions to the sport.  Congratulations!
