Our Thoughts Are With Kennywood Today

The attractions industry lost one of its own this week, as 46-year-old Heidi Overmeir, director of school sales at Kennywood in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, was one of three people murdered at a fitness club in Pittsburgh Tuesday night.

This morning, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran an excellent, albeit heartbreaking, story about Heidi's life and death. Kennywood representatives are quoted throughout and mention what an upbeat, hardworking, beloved employee she was. You can read the full article here.

All of us at IAAPA are saddened for Heidi's family, and Kennywood.
