Swimming Pool Where Biden Worked as Lifeguard Named for Him

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Former vice president Joe Biden already has a train station in Wilmington named for him.
    
Now, local officials are making a splash by naming a swimming pool for him.
    
Gov.  John Carney was scheduled to join Biden and community members on Monday, when the aquatic center at the Brown-Burton Winchester Park will be renamed in his honor.
    
As a teenager, Biden worked as a lifeguard at what was known as the Prices Run swimming pool.
    
He writes in his autobiography about being the only white lifeguard working at the inner-city pool in the summer of 1962.
