For the past five years, SABAH has had the wonderful privilege of watching Lylian Webster grow from a shy and timid girl into an outgoing and independent young lady. Beautiful and kind, Lylian now exudes confidence and poise, as she diligently practices each week to improve her skating skills at the Hamburg Town Rink.
At just 11 years old, Lylian continues to overcome challenges, including visual impairments, to make incredible progress each season. While Lylian took her first steps on the ice as a cautious six year old, she was quickly moved into the intermediate group at Hamburg where she continues to thrive alongside her fellow SABAH athletes. Her efforts are faithfully supported by her devoted mom and grandparents, as well as her dedicated volunteer partner, Mike Brown. Each week, Lylian and her family arrive early enough to cheerfully greet the other SABAH athletes and their families. They also routinely provide support in the skate room, participate in the Skate-A-Thon, and assist with costumes.
As Lylian prepares for her 5th Celebration on Ice show, we continue to watch her grow and mature into a role model for other young SABAH athletes. Because of her dedication, as well as her compassion and support for her friends at the Hamburg Town Rink, SABAH is pleased to name Lylian as the December Athlete of the Month.
