Each LSC or other governing body can submit a candidate who is deserving of recognition and the winning official is selected by a sub-committee of the National Officials Committee to be recognized in Swimming World magazine every two months. April’s Maxwell Award recognition goes to Lisa Jackson with North Carolina Swimming.
Lisa is a single mother of three kids, all swimmers. While many parents can’t seem to find the time to attend a swim meet, Lisa typically works all session of a meet and manages to provide a dish for hospitality.
Lisa has mentored many of the stroke and turns, starters and referees in her area. While all three have graduated high school (2 went on to swim in college), Lisa continues to support the swimming community helping out when needed.
