Lego League Continues Legacy After Plane Crash

January 14, 2012, 10:00 PM by Jon Berg

Lego League Continues Legacy After Plane Crash
SIOUX FALLS, SD - For the widows of Dan Swets and Kevin Anderson, they never imagined they'd be taking over the first Lego League.

But after last month's deadly plane crash that killed their husbands along with head judge Joshua, it's now become a reality.

"We really decided that it was important to keep this going I mean Dan, Kevin and Josh loved First Lego League so much so Cindy and I, that's Kevin's wife decided that we wanted to really put on a good show for them and make this the dream that they had," Robyn Swets, Dan's wife, said.

"I decided that heaven must've decided that they wanted to start a Lego League, because they took the best guys for it," Cindy Anderson, Kevin's wife, said.

Dan and Kevin started as coaches during their first year in the league, and became more heavily involved throughout the years.

"When we first started meeting four years ago we just called for a general meeting of people interested in helping the kids get going in science and technology. And Dan Swets and Kevin Anderson were two of the first volunteers that really showed up," Founder of First Lego League Of South Dakota Alan Swanson said. 

And while it's difficult to continue the Lego League after losing Dan, Kevin and Josh, everyone here knows that it's exactly what they would want.

"They would want us to continue on and we are continuing on in their honor," Swanson said.

"This is exactly what they would want and if the situation was reversed they would do the same, because it is for the kids," Anderson said.

Providing some new building blocks to continue the league's legacy.
