Colby-Sawyer Assistant Coach Recognized with Jean Freeman Scholarship Award

Colby-Sawyer College Assistant Swimming/Diving Coach Kim Lloyd has been awarded the 2014 Jean Freeman Scholarship by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA). The award recognizes a male and a female assistant coach in each division of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) whose exceptional contributions have brought recognition to their college or university, and whose leadership, integrity, honesty, competitive attitude and personal graciousness epitomizes those characteristics reflected by Jean Freeman.

“I am humbled, honored and excited to receive this scholarship,” says Lloyd, who will be recognized at the annual CSCAA Convention and Clinic in Las Vegas, NV, May 20-23. “Both my family and I are excited about my participation in the convention.”

Asked about her favorite moments on the job, Lloyd said, “[When] student-athletes exceed their own expectations and mine [after having been challenged] to go beyond what they believe they are capable of, the smile on their face, the confidence in their step, and the growth in their maturity are [ all amazing to witness].”

“I love to help [them] achieve goals and [grow] through sport,” she added.

Recipients were selected by a committee comprised of members of the Summit for Empowering Women in Swimming, of which Jean was a founding member. The members of the selection committee are Carol Capitani, University of Texas; Marian Clark, University of Pittsburgh; Anne Goodman James, Colorado College; Mo-Jo Isaac, Skyline High School (MI); Stefanie Kerska; Susan Teeter, Princeton University and Erica Quam of The Coaching Experience.
