HL Grad Week: Katy ISD seniors behind ‘Hope Swims’ teach foster kids how to swim

HOUSTON – Houston Life’s Derrick Shore and Lauren Kelly chat with two friends from Katy ISD who put their swimming skills to good use to make a difference in the lives of foster kids with disabilities.

Napoleon Nasta-Terrazas, from Katy High School, and Sebastian Moore from Cinco Ranch High School, are the founders of Hope Swims, a local nonprofit founded in 2021 with the mission of teaching foster children how to swim, not just to survive in the water but also to boost their confidence.
