Rename the Acton-Boxborough High School Pool the "Jeff Johnson Natatorium"
For the last 41 years Jeff Johnson has been the face of swimming in the Acton-Boxborough community. He has touched thousands of lives through his time as coach of the AB Town Swim Team, Head Coach of the Boys and Girls high school swim teams, and the owner and head coach of Patriot Swim Club.
For all of the time and dedication that Jeff showed our community, it is only fitting that the AB High School Pool be named for this tremendous man. Guidelines set forth by the Acton-Boxborough School Committee state that a minimum of three years must pass after retirement or death for a facility to be named after an individual.
This petition is intended to show the School Committee the extent of the support from the community in bypassing this three year wait. PLEASE, add your name (and maybe a note about your connection with Coach. i.e., swimmer/former swimmer, parent of a swimmer/former swimmer, community member, etc.) to show your support for renaming the pool the "Jeff Johnson Natatorium" and for bypassing the three year wait.
The countless lives that Coach has touched deserves recognition. We must never forget this great man and we must preserve his legacy within our community. Let's join together and get this done! #doitforcoach
