Reston Tennis Manager Mary Conaway was inducted into the Mid-Atlantic Tennis Hall of Fame at a reception in Arlington on Saturday.

The Mid-Atlantic Tennis and Education Foundation says it chose Conaway because she is “a leader who has promoted the growth of tennis in our communities.”

Conaway has been involved in Reston tennis since 1987. She became a certified PTR instructor in 1998 and currently serves as tennis manager for RA.

Conaway manages Reston’s USTA Pathway programs, working with three-year-olds to adults and seniors. In 2000, Conaway was chairperson of the Virginia District Junior Recreation Committee, and was selected as Virginia District Program Promoter of the Year.

Among her awards: 2009 USTA Mid-Atlantic NJTL Chapter of the Year; 2010 PTR/USTA Community Service Award; 2012 Voted Best Tennis Club in Northern Virginia by Virginia Magazine; 2012 USTA Mid-Atlantic Section Organization of the Year; and 2012 RSI Park and Recreation Agency of the Year.

He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place.
