Welcome to the Shelley Glover Foundation.

The Shelley Glover Foundation is a non-profit organization founded to honor Shelley Glover, a gifted athlete and compassionate leader. We are dedicated to promoting athletic activities and competition for youth of all ages and abilities with a focus on Shelley’s favorite sports, skiing and swimming. With the help of our Sponsors and Donors, we provide support for athletic opportunities and competition through the development of innovative programs and community partnerships that expand access to sports. Please join us supporting Shelley’s dream that all kids have a chance to ski and swim.

The future of U.S. swimming is 6 feet 9, 17 years old — and African American

The combination of his competitive potential and his skin color makes Whitley perhaps the most important male swimmer to come along since Phelps, Gaines argues. Whitley has spent his entire high school career at Penn Charter, a prestigious Quaker school in Philadelphia known more for its academic rigor than its swimming success. Crystal Keelan, Whitley’s longtime coach, has built a more than respectable program at the school, but Whitley remains the only swimmer competing at a national — let alone international — level.
