Given to an individual, organization, business, or group that has gone the extra mile by contributing outstanding service to a club or to OMS.
Jon Clark served as Head Coach for the Barracudas for 20 years. During that time he was also active in OMS. The picture below is of Jon when he was OMS Coach at the FINA World Masters meet at Stanford. A good example of the positive attitude and contributions made by Jon was several years ago when LCM Nationals were held at Mt. Hood Community College. One of the Coaches who was supposed to help with the relays was not able to assist. So Jon, not an official OMS Coach for that meet, jumped right in and helped with the relays. I think the Special Service Award is a great way for OMS to say thank you to Jon for 20 years of service to and for Masters swimming in Oregon.
