Ethan has the unique distinction of securing his job in the midst of a pandemic. The YMCA hired Ethan to help enforce health and safety protocols, and as Ethan was already familiar with the Y being a great swimmer, he was a great fit for the position! Although he is just getting settled in his new job, Ethan has excelled, picking up his tasks quickly, and refining his own techniques. His parents have been an instrumental part of helping Ethan succeed – thanks, mom & dad! After a great first day on the job, Ethan definitely earned a small cheeseburger and ride through the carwash – two of his very favorite things! Way to go Ethan!
