September 7, 2018 - New Coaches’ Rep to the Board

Good evening all,

As you know, the board received notification that the Coaches Committee Chair wished to step down. Please join me in thanking Jeb Beaver for the great job he has done over the years with our coach mentoring programs, helping with the schedule and the annual Coaches meeting, working with coaches to identify their concerns and needs and representing them to the Board of Directors to champion their goals to better serve our athletes.

The MDSI office pulled together an announcement to the coaches and solicited interest from coaches wishing to step up to serve the rest of this term. Three coaches expressed interest. Per our by laws, the coaches voted and Trevor Rill, Head Coach of OPST,  was elected as their new Chair.

Trevor is a strong advocate for both coach and swimmer needs. Please join me in congratulating Trevor and supporting him in his new role on the MDSI Board of Directors.


J. Wade Atkins,
Vice Chair, Administration
