SARAH McDANIEL -- PRESIDENT
Sarah is a native Houstonian who grew up in Cy-Fair and currently resides with her husband, Jonathan, and two children in Magnolia. They have been proud members of MAC since 2015. Landon (14) currently swims on Pre-National Elite and Kenley (11) swims on Age Group White. Sarah is a USA Swimming certified stroke and turn official as well as an Administrative Officer. You will see her in her white and navy uniform at every swim meet.


Sarah currently works as a Sales Consultant for Sysco Foods of Houston. She obtained a Bachelors of Business Administration in Business with a specialization in Marketing and minor in Public Relations from Texas Lutheran University. She was a student athlete competing in both basketball and cross country. Sarah serves on the Board of Directors for a local chapter of the Young Men’s Service League. Sarah and Jonathan have been married 17 years this November.


JOE TREADAWAY-- VICE PRESIDENT
Joe has been a member of the Magnolia Aquatic Club Family since 2018 when his daughter Caeleigh first hit the water. The Treadaway Family chose MAC over all the others due to its reputation among the other programs in the area.  Joe has been involved on deck and behind the scenes with the program as the Head Safety Marshall. He can also be found cleaning up an athlete's unfortunate bloody nose, providing impromptu DJ services at practice, posting heat sheets, timing on deck, and on occasion, chasing down a thrown electrical breaker during swim meets. Joe and his wife Trish have stepped into whatever gap the club has needed them to.


The vision that Joe has for the booster club is one that is 100% athlete centric.  This club's mission should be to support the athletes and make it easy for anyone asked to make a donation.  It is his goal to work with others who share a similar vision and can challenge each other to make difficult decisions to create an excellent booster club for our athletes and parents.  


Joe started his swimming career late in life with the Magnolia Masters swim club that swims at the Magnolia Aquatic Center.  Joe went on to swim numerous endurance events including two Ironman Texas finishes and numerous ultra-marathons.  He has recently stepped away from the swim, bike, run life to support his daughter Caeleigh and her swim aspirations. Joe's passion for serving others comes from a long line of service in his family.  He followed in his father's footsteps by becoming a volunteer fireman and medic. 


GINGER CALLAHAN -- TREASURER
As a parent I started this swimming endeavor as a deer in head lights many years ago when my daughter started taking lessons when she was two years old and here we are 14 years later still at it. 
In life on dry land, I am a professional as well as an active board member for our large neighborhood swim team.  On our summer team, I run swim meets, work with the coaches, other board members, and communicate with parents to make sure that every season is a success.  I have learned a lot not only about swimming as a sport but also what I want from a club which is the reason I am running for the board here at MAC.


We are all a critical part of the success of the club and our swimmers.  I believe in order for MAC to reach its maximum potential we need strong leadership, clear short- and long-term goals for the club, and communication with the membership of the club.  I want to be part of that strong leadership team to help guide the club.


A team is a reflection of its leadership.  The board is critical component of MAC’s leadership.  The board is here to help support the coaches, monitor and strengthen programs and services as well as determine which programs are consistent with the organization’s mission and monitor their effectiveness and communicate that to you the parent.  With my professional experience as well as prior board experience I would successfully provide the strong leadership needed to move forward and contribute to making MAC the premier swim club of the area.


Recently there have been a lot of changes at MAC.  With new leadership comes change, I believe that this is a time for us to reevaluate what our club’s short- and long-term goals.  I want to help define S.M.A.R.T. goals for our club: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely.  I believe that with strong leadership we can achieve any goal we set forth to achieve. 


I have experienced many different areas of this sport. Along the way, I have made many great relationships with parents, coaches, and other swimmers. I hope to become a member of the MAC board using my expertise from my professional life and my experiences as a swim parent to be a voice for you to better the club so that we can all experience success together.
