A trailblazer as defined by Merriam-Webster is someone who “blazes a trail to guide others; a pathfinder” — and that is exactly what April Emory, the 2022 CoSIDA Mary Jo Haverbeck Trailblazer Award winner, has done for countless women in the industry.  
Emory previously worked in athletic communications at St. Paul's College, Elizabeth City State University and Albany State University.
The Mary Jo Haverbeck Trailblazer Award is presented annually to an individual who is a pioneer in the field of athletic communications who has mentored and helped improve the level of diversity within CoSIDA.

April was the first Black woman to serve on the CoSIDA Executive Board of Directors in 2005 when she was selected to fill the final two years of an open Board term while at Elizabeth City State University — an NCAA Division II and Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association school in Elizabeth City, NC. She went on to serve another three-year term on the board, carrying on her leadership duties through 2010.
