MEET ALEXIS MARSHALL!
// ONE OF US
Miss Alexis Marshall has only been employed at Wind Creek Montgomery since late April, but on May 8th, after being on the job as a Pool Attendant for only three weeks, Alexis made a huge difference in someone’s life. This is her story, in her own words.
“On Mother’s Day, I was sitting in my chair, watching the pool, making sure no one was running. Everything was going good, I was watching this kid, he had been here for a while. He was struggling, not a very strong swimmer, he was young, around 6 years old, and his mom swam to the other side of the pool. His sister, who had been watching him a little bit, went with mom to the other side of the pool. Well the little boy thought he could swim after his mom to get to her, but he started struggling a lot, was throwing his hands above water, and he was going under, up and under, almost like a bob, and he wasn’t tall enough to touch the sides, so I ran to his side of the pool and yelled, “are you okay?” but he wasn’t answering me, so I jumped in. I grabbed him, and the mom noticed, and was very thankful, that everything worked out. I was happy I was there. I just now got to wear my tennis shoes again, they were soaking wet. But it was worth it, definitely!”
Miss Marshall currently attends the University of Alabama, where she is studying communicative disorders, including speech pathology and speech therapy. Alexis has a bright future ahead of her, and we couldn’t be more proud to call her one of our own!
