During the week Joy Manning oversees construction projects…on the weekends she is a World Champion Wakeboarder.  In fact, the Smith Mountain Lake resident is a NINE-time world champion. This last championship was special in that she road the entire season in memory of mentors that have inspired her throughout her career in construction.

While she loves her job, Manning will tell you…she works all week so she can spend the weekend on the water.
