HAIL TO THE CHIEF

Scuba Diving - - Talk -

Scuba Div­ing ex­pe­ri­enced a dou­ble win with the 2018 class of in­ductees to the Women Divers Hall of Fame: They in­clude our editor-in-chief Pa­tri­cia Wuest and Imag­ing colum­nist Erin Quigley.

Wuest joined Scuba Div­ing in 1992 as an as­sis­tant editor; in 2013 she was named editor-in-chief of Scuba and its sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion, Sport Diver.

“WDHOF con­nects, nur­tures and in­spires fe­male divers in­volved in all as­pects of the in­dus­try — it’s an in­cu­ba­tor and a force for our in­dus­try’s lead­ers and ocean stew­ards of to­mor­row,” Wuest says. “Who wouldn’t want to be a part of some­thing that is ca­pa­ble of so much?”

Quigley is a teacher and award-win­ning pho­tog­ra­pher, and the first Adobe Ace-cer­ti­fied ex­pert to fo­cus specif­i­cally on post­pro­duc­tion tech­niques for un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phers. She joined the mag­a­zine in 2015.

“It's a great sur­prise, a great honor, and a great obli­ga­tion to en­cour­age and in­spire other women in the field of div­ing,” says Quigley.

Founded in 1999, WDHOF is an in­ter­na­tional non­profit pro­fes­sional honor so­ci­ety ded­i­cated to rec­og­niz­ing women divers across fields, in­clud­ing science, ex­plo­ration, ed­u­ca­tion, me­dia, the arts and mil­i­tary div­ing. It is com­prised of more than 200 mem­bers from 18 coun­tries. wdhof.org
