The swim team at Chandler High School, in Chandler, Ariz., has suffered deep losses from COVID-19. In July, its beloved head coach, Kerry Croswhite, who also taught history at the school, died of the virus. Then one of the team’s captains, Brisa Vasquez, 17, lost both her parents to the virus within 24 hours, on Dec. 2 and 3. On Dec. 5, Chandler High held a ceremony to rename the pool for Croswhite. His widow, Laurie, carries on as an assistant coach and 1st grade teacher in the Chandler Unified school district. She told her story to EdWeek senior contributing writer Catherine Gewertz.
