(KSL News) A Magna swim coach retired from her club, but the swimmers weren't ready to say good-bye just yet. So, they nominated her for a High 5.
Gail Christensen has worked as a swim coach for a decade plus, teaching countless youth ages 5 to 14 how to swim. Kori Jellinich nominated her for a High 5.
"She really cares about the kids, and they're really going to miss her. She's just terrific," Jellinich said.
Christensen said, "I just love them. They just all mean a bunch to me. I wanted a big family, and I got it."
As thanks to her hard work, Gail Christensen received a $50 gift certificate to Winder Farm, and, of course, a High 5 from our Coco Warner.
