On a cold day in Portland, the water’s warm at the YMCA. It’s great news for the group of Casco Bay High School students taking their swim test.
“Swimming is a life skill. It’s a life-saving skill, and it’s essential,” said Grant Gerber, a junior on the swim team at Husson University.
Gerber returned to teach a week-long swim intensive he created when he was a student at Casco Bay High School. It’s for students who don’t have a lot, or any, swimming experience. Many of them are students who immigrated to the United States.
