Title: Past SPIRE Swim Ambassador
SPIRE IA, home to one of the most comprehensive swim facilities in the world, is excited to announce Three-Time Olympian, Olympic Team Captain, and Best Selling Author Elizabeth Beisel as their International Swim Ambassador. As a SPIRE Ambassador, Beisel will lead programs for SPIRE student athletes both during her visits and virtually. Beisel, whose passions include ocean conservancy and leadership for teenage girls, will visit multiple times per year.
I am thrilled to be a part of the SPIRE family for so many reasons. They emphasize world class academics for student-athletes grades 9-12, all while providing the finest athletic facilities in North America on their campus. SPIRE’s values align perfectly with mine; highlighting the importance of academics, athletics, personal skills development, and career path preparation.
