Megan Adams of Center City, Minnesota has been chosen as the 2021 recipient of the $1500 Jennifer Odom/Dave Kammerer Memorial Scholarship. Megan will be a freshman at the University of Minnesota-Duluth majoring in Engineering. The USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation scholarships are awarded each year to water skiers who show leadership abilities and demonstrate that involvement in the sport has helped them grow both personally and academically.
"I feel honored and grateful to win this amazing scholarship from USA Waterski & Wake Sports Foundation. The sport of barefoot waterskiing will always be a big part of my life and I will continue to share and grow the sport while in college," says Megan who is a Junior World Barefoot Overall Champion and Open Women's Competitor. The Jennifer Odom/David Kammerer Memorial Scholarship was established in 2008. Jennifer Odom was a junior girl national competitor who was abducted near her home in Pasco County, Florida in February of 1993. She was later found murdered. David Kammerer of Excelsior, Minnesota was a former Mens 2 National Overall Champion and “old school” barefooter. He died in a plane crash in July of 2007. The USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation is very proud of our young athletes and honored to support their future academic needs.
