Brandon Anderson is the Waynesville Parks and Recreation Department’s lead lifeguard, and Ben Williams is a fulltime lifeguard at the pool. With the certification complete, Anderson and Williams can offer instruction to members of the public and aquatics staff.

“They are the pinnacle of water safety and I’m proud of their accomplishments,” said Luke Kinsland, aquatic supervisor for the Waynesville Recreation Center.
