When I started as EVP for the AWSA Eastern Region, I knew I had a lot to learn. We’re involved in a sport with a rich history and some quite amazing people from right here in the Eastern Region. I asked Jon Thacher to help me understand some of that history and to know the stories behind the people and awards that we hand out each year. Here are a few…

Each one of us is on a journey. We travel from day to day in work, in play, in life. We are fortunate to have others with whom we can share in our journey. Through our love of a sport, we are blessed with an opportunity to meet people that we otherwise may never know. We find ourselves inspired by the accomplishments of others, knowing that what they’ve done is not easy.
Emmy Healy was one of those who inspired many in the water ski community. She is remembered as a very humble, kind person, and of course a great skier. It is a Blessing knowing she is no longer in pain and may she Rest In Peace. Prayers for Emmy and her family. Our deepest sympathies to those who were close to her.
Records held by Emmy include:
W4 Trick – Emmy Healy 3520 pts East Regionals – Avon 8/1/1996
W5 Trick – Emmy Healy 3560 pts MC Eastern Regionals “R” – Dave’s Pond 8/5/2002
W6 Trick – Emmy Healy 3560 pts Eastern Regionals “R” – Avon 8/0/2003
