SOFLO’s Ana Frable One Of Seven Nicholas Dworet Memorial Fund Scholarship Winners

PEMBROKE PINES, July 8, 2022—South Florida Aquatic Club’s Ana Luisa Frable is one of seven senior high school swimmers awarded a $1,000 college scholarship named in honor of Nicholas Dworet.

“We think you are a perfect example of the type of swimmer that we are happy to support,” wrote treasurer Joe Chiarella in her notification letter.

The former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School swim captain and honors student was one of 17 killed Feb. 14, 2018 in a mass shooting on the Douglas campus.

Dworet was preparing at TS Aquatics Swim Club to swim in college after earning a scholarship to the University of Indianapolis and had aspirations to represent Sweden in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

The $1,000 scholarship from the 2022 TS Aquatics Nicholas Dworet Memorial Fund will be used towards the Miami Palmetto High School senior’s college education according to the Swim4 Nick Fund’s Board of Directors.

Frable is outspoken when it comes to promoting gun control, stricter laws and advocating for safer schools. She was a third grader at nearby O’Head Meadow Elementary in Newton, Conn. when Sandy Hook Elementary became the site of the Dec. 14, 2012 deadly killings of 26 people including 20 children ages 6 and 7. Frable’s friend from her swim team, Daniel Barden, tragically died during the attack.
