Swimmers Support Deployed Alumni with Care Packages

Middle School Swimmers are showing support for two of their own.
Pinecrest alums, Patrick Carroll ’15 and Michael Denkman ’17, also former Pinecrest swimmers, are currently stationed in two different military locations in Afghanistan.
Thanks to generous donations from many Middle School families, our swimmers sent care packages to Michael and Patrick on March 8, 2019, and then again on April 22, 2019. Mrs. Jordan, Swim Team Coach, and swimmers will be mailing the last of the care packages in late May - to spread out the love over time!
Here is a portion of a message from Mrs. Carroll, sent to Coach Jordan after the first care packages were mailed:
"Patrick has returned to original camp. He was involved in a dangerous mission just a few days ago... But prayers are heard, he is well, and back to what I think is a “more boring” peaceful place. You understand how much we appreciate prayers. I want these two boys back home safe, but most importantly, closer to God... Love to you, thank you so, so much to you and the whole swim team."
We ask our community to keep up the prayers for Michael, Patrick, and their troops, until all safely return home.
