At its meeting of April 2, the SBHS
Aquatics Booster Club Board of Directors approved the request of the
Johnson family to utilize funds donated in memory of Nicholas Johnson for
the purposes of capital improvements to the Santa Barbara High School
aquatics facility and for education related to water safety. The Board will be
working in consultation with the Johnson family to select specific projects
and educational programs. "Several thousand dollars have already been
donated to the fund, and even more has been pledged" said Jennifer
Brummett, the group's president.
UCSB student and water polo player Nicholas Johnson died on March 24,
2014 after being pulled unresponsive from the Santa Barbara High School
pool. Before attending UCSB, Johnson competed for Santa Barbara High
School's water polo and swim teams. He also played on the water polo
team for the Santa Barbara Aquatics Club.
