First Girl Lifeguard??
1968 saw a first for the Roosevelt Park Swimming Pool. The first Girl Lifeguard (or at least the first one anyone at that time could remember ).. The first female Lifeguard hired by the Park board in 10 years… the Male Lifeguards had no memory of a female prior to this. Her duties included guarding, sweeping down the concrete deck and teaching swim lessons. She was from Stanley and a student at Minot State.
