Name MJC complex after coach

Congratulations to Steve Feaver on the Aquatic Center at Turlock High School being named in his honor ("It's his water world," Aug. 12, Page C-1). Feaver has meant a lot to the swimming and water polo community of Turlock and Stanislaus County.

I suggest the same honor be extended to Dave Ashleigh and the Modesto Junior College swim complex. Ashleigh retired recently after giving more than two decades to MJC and the aquatics program. His leadership, love for and commitment to swimming and water polo are apparent in anyone who competed for him or who knew him personally. I had the honor of doing both. This wonderful facility is home to many aquatic programs and should be made a reflection to the one who inspired so many.
