I have been a member of the Board since 2014.  My wife, Renee, and I have two children – Kaitlyn (18 - a freshman at Indiana University) and Ian (14).  We became involved with SSC through the SSC Swim School.  Kaitlyn started swim lessons when she was 5.  Ian also went through the SSC Swim School and joined the Club when he was 6. He's now in Bluefins.

In regards to my career, I am the Vice President of Engineering for Clinical Architecture LLC (BA in CS from Manchester University and MBA from the University of Indianapolis).

I am involved in Head Table activities including helping at Super Splashes and co-Chairing Head Table for meets like Age Group State and the Summer Sizzler.  I am also an Administrative Official (via USA Swimming and Indiana Swimming).

My family has been a part of Southeastern Swim Club since 2009, and my daughter Katelyn is a member of the Seniors practice group. I am currently a member of the Board of Directors and Vice President of the club. I believe that the Board has done a good job of shepherding the talent that we have among our members and directing the overall operations of the club. I appreciate SSC's athlete development philosophy; the genuine interest that the Coaches have in the ongoing development of SSC as a great club; and the active participation of parents in supporting our swimmers and hosting well-run meets. All of us value the friendships that we have developed with the SSC family over the years. I am hoping to receive your vote to be re-elected to the Board of Directors, and continue to move the club forward.

The Howsers joined SSC in August of 2012. Our girls started in Flying Fish and have progressed through Stingrays, Sharks, Dolphins, Blue Runners, Barracudas and Intermediates, Juniors, and Seniors. Abi and Ami are both now Seniors.

Jerry and I began our volunteering for SSC as Stroke and Turn Officials. After two years, I became a Starter and am now a Referee. Outside the pool I am an Audiologist providing hearing testing and hearing aids for our Veterans at my offices in Michigan, Missouri and here in Fishers.

SSC has been an integral part in the growth of my girls and our family. We’ve formed lasting friendships and relationships we cherish. We love being on deck getting to know other parents, swimmers, coaches and visiting clubs.

The Stolle Family joined SSC in 2011 and currently has two swimmers in the club. Anna swims with the Senior Group and my wife, Chrissy, swims with the Master’s Program. Much of my volunteer involvement for the club comes as a USA Swimming Official. Whether serving as a Meet Referee or helping out with a Super Splash, I’m most often found on deck.

When not on a pool deck, I’m working as a Senior Financial Advisor & Vice President with Merrill Lynch. I’ve been a competitive cyclist since age 14 and still enjoy the competition and advocacy within the sport. I currently sit on several non-profit boards including the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation and the Rollfast Foundation.

It has been fun to watch our swimmers learn life skills and grow through the Southeastern Swim Club. I’m proud that our Club offers development programs for swimmers of all different skill levels.  There is always a plan and path that our coaches have to help the swimmer’s reach their goals.  I’m excited to watch SSC’s continued growth and looking forward to contributing new ideas to benefit both the swimmers and their families.

Secretary

The Walker family joined Southeastern Swim Club in August 2016. Payton currently swims in the Sharks practice group, and Colt is a Flying Fish. At swim meets you can find me being a Meet Chair for Runners or working other various positions on deck and cheering on SSC swimmers. I believe our board has done a tremendous job of guiding the club in the right direction and our amazing coaching staff works extremely hard at helping all athletes at various skill levels to reach their potential.

Southeastern Swim Club has allowed our daughter and our entire family to form friendships that will last a lifetime. We truly enjoy getting to know everyone and share this amazing experience together with other families. We love the camaraderie of Southeastern Swim Club, it is like a family and we are blessed to be a part of it.
 
When I am not at the pool, I am teaching Kindergarten Discovery at Thorpe Creek Elementary. I have been a part of education for several years and I love working with children and seeing their growth throughout the years.

My family has been a part of Southeastern Swim Club since 2014. My wife Jenny and I have two daughters. Elise (13) is in the Bluefins group and Annie (10) is in the Sharks Group. During swim meets and Super Splashes, I am most likely volunteering at head table where I work as an Admin Official. I think our club runs the smoothest meets and I'm proud to be a part of helping make that happen.
 
Away from the pool, I work at North Central High School where I teach physics and serve as the chair of the science department. 
 
Because of the friendships we've developed during our time with the club we consider SSC to be an extension of our family. The coaches and parents have had a major impact on the social and athletic development of our girls. I would like to be a part of helping our club grow so that it can have the same positive impact on other families as it has had on ours.
