During National Drowning Prevention Month in May, Congressman Roger Williams (TX-25) took to the House floor to recognize the Austin YMCA’s commitment to drowning prevention and aquatics safety. He praised the community partnerships the YMCA is championing as well as the Safety Around Water curriculum implemented at Ys across the nation. James Finck and Tony Shuman, the CEOs at the Austin YMCA and the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth, had the opportunity to visit with the Congressman’s office during YMCA National Advocacy Days in February.
“We’re thankful for Congressman Williams’ support of the YMCA and his commitment to raising awareness around this critical issue that impacts Texas and the country as a whole,” said James Finck, CEO of the Austin YMCA.
