Lifeguards’ action earns certification

STERLING – The Starfish Aquatics Institute awarded the Duis Recreation Center, operated by the Sterling Park District, the Five Star Award following an unannounced performance audit of the lifeguards and management staff. Stephanie Milnes of Morrison, staff manager, accepted the award on behalf of park district.

The award is presented in recognition of commitment to safety and training, and exceptional performance by the lifeguard staff on duty at the time of the audit.

The local lifeguards who contributed to achievement of the 5-Star award included Demi Reitzel and Stephanie Milnes.

SAI is one of the largest lifeguard, swim instructor and pool operator certifying agencies in the United States.
