(February 11, Elora, Tennessee) – AHRMA is pleased to announce the selection of our new AHRMA Road Race Director, Dewanna Comer, effective immediately. Dewanna has served in this role as interim Road Race Director and has proven her skills and commitment over many years while providing a range of support to AHRMA.
Professionally, Dewanna has served as a program manager in the defense industry, was the 2006 AMA Print Media Journalist of the Year and is no stranger to AHRMA. Having volunteered countless hours over the past three years while her husband, Curtis Comer, served as AHRMA’s Executive Director, Dewanna comes to us with an intimate understanding of AHRMA.
Don’t let the number ‘3’ fool you. Dewanna says. “I met Curtis, the love of my life, 36 years ago and his passion was everything motorcycles. This resulted in my volunteering in multiple organizations over the years as well as hosting events on our property.
“I am all about the ‘Team’ and working with AHRMA the past three years I have come to love our Road Race crew and our racing and non-racing members. I look forward to serving this organization alongside the best Volunteers in the industry.”
Craig Grantham, Executive Director shared, “We are very thankful for all that Dewanna has provided for AHRMA in the past, and we’re looking forward to many more years with her at the helm of our Road Race program. It is rare when you find the blend of passion, competence, and commitment that she brings…we are very lucky. We know that the program will be run efficiently and professionally, and we are all excited to have her leading this key discipline for AHRMA. Please join me in welcoming Dewanna and be sure to congratulate her when you have a moment at your next AHRMA race event.”
