Athens Area Mediation Service – Board of Directors
Mac Stricklen – Interim Board President
Mac first came to Athens as a student in the late 20th Century and loved the area enough to make it his home. He originally encountered mediation through his previous work in Student Affairs at Ohio University. He’s been involved with AAMS in several capacities over the years: as a volunteer mediator, a trainer, a board member, and as a soup transporter. He is also OU’s Ombudsperson, a parent, a cyclist, a hiker, a kayaker, and a companion to small funny-looking dog.
