MU senior Brian Robichaux gives a swimming lesson to 6-year-old Jessica Clark at the Hickman High School pool Monday. Fifteen trainees finished the city’s certification program over the weekend, cutting the city’s shortage in half. Applicants must be at least 15 years old and prove they are capable of swimming 200 meters, treading water for two minutes and retrieving a 10-pound weight from the pool before they are certified as lifeguards.
