New Pool to be Named the Stanley H. Collins Aquatic Center


At their June 9, 2022 board meeting, the Board of City Commissioners officially named the new pool complex after Stanley Collins.

Mr. Collins, along with his family, managed the Sallisaw Municipal Swimming pool for over 25 years.  During this time he taught hundreds of local children how to swim.  Mr. Collins was also a long time educator in the Sallisaw Public School system and served our country during World War II and the Korean War.   Whether Mr. Collins was teaching, coaching, or showing kids how to swim, Mr. Collins has left a lasting impression on many residents of Sallisaw.  

"To honor Stanley H. Collins for his love and support of the community of Sallisaw and his service to our country, upon construction and opening of the new Sallisaw swimming pool complex, the complex shall be forever named the "Stanley H. Collins Aquatic Center".

Congratulations Mr. Collins, and thank you for all you have done for our community!
