"Hugh Riley, of Waco, Texas, deserves a kudo in the biggest way. This man has taught thousands of people how to dive under the NAUI certification, expecting absolutely no compensation. He provides all gear, tanks, air and time out of his very own pocket. And if a student loses equipment or damages it, Hugh uses his own money to fix or replace it. In addition to being a Baylor University professor, he teaches both week and weekends, passing on his passion for the sport to another…at his own expense. His teaching abilities far exceed any other that I have experienced, and he is very diligent on keeping his students safe -- for he wants his students taught the right way! He does all of this out of the goodness of his heart and passion for diving. This man has truly touched so many lives in the most positive way. "
