Congratulations to Richard Montgomery Swimming and Diving Coach Akshay Gandhi for being selected as the 2024 recipient of the prestigious Alan Murray Award. The Allen Murray award is presented annually to a Montgomery County Public Schools swimming and diving coach. This award was created to honor the memory of a man whose family values, friendly demeanor and excellent teaching skills serve as the standard to which all coaches should aspire.

The late Murray’s impact on Montgomery County kids was remarkable. His role as a teacher, coach, camp director, and the founder and director of the Montgomery County Stroke and Turn Clinic, played a vital role in elevating the standards of the district’s swimming and diving program.
