Club Leadership


All of our parents and students are leaders and coaches as we work together towards excellence. These are our coaches and board members. 

Eden Mackie,
Club Director

Eden competed in the NCFCA for five years, and graduated from high school this past May. Instead of heading straight to college, she decided to take a gap year and pursue some unique leadership opportunities, including directing our club! In the future, she hopes to earn a business degree and raise a family, but for now, she’s excited to be able to pour back into the activity that gave her so much.

Anita Bruck,
Head TP Coach
Josh & Alison Malone,

Jeremy Newman, LD Coach

Born in California, Jeremy soon moved to Texas with his family at an early age. Jeremy graduated as a life-long home school student and now lives in Dallas with his wife and young son. He has taught Lincoln-Douglas debate since 2012, and works full time as a lobbyist and Director of Public Policy for the Texas Home School Coalition.  Jeremy is attending law school in the fall and manages THSC's political election efforts between legislative sessions.
