At the February 11, 2020 Board Meeting, Post Oak Savannah GCD welcomed Mrs. Dana McClaren as the new Board Member representing Agriculture interests from Milam County. Mrs. McClaren is a resident of Milam County and attended the University of North Texas graduating with a B.B.A. in Marketing in 1981. She then attended Texas Tech University School of Law where she became a member of the Order of Barristers as she received a J.D. in 1984. Dana has been married to her husband Bob, the owner of 44 Farms, since 1985. She has been responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of the buildings at 44 Farms since approximately 1999. She has participated in many volunteer activities including the Junior League in both Temple and Houston, parent leadership organizations at several schools, the Board of Directors at Marlow Water Service Corporation and is presently serving as the leader of a ladies’ bible study at Marlow Baptist Church.
As a new Board Member for POSGCD, McClaren has been appointed to serve on the Grant, Rules, and Building Committee. Dana steps into the position previously held by Mr. Durwood Tucker, who recently retired after serving six years on the Board. Mr. Tucker is recognized for his distinguished career and dedication to the success of POSGCD and its many programs which benefit the citizens of the District.
Dana is excited to serve in this position on the Board from Milam County. “ I believe my experience as an Partner Attorney with the Dallas law firm of Cowles and Thompson, practicing primarily in personal injury defense litigation and as managing partner of the Cowles and Thompson satellite office in Temple, TX will help POSGCD,” said McClaren. Because of her experience, Dana understands existing state water needs and future demands placed on our aquifers. “I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the POSGCD team and look forward to serving the people of this District,” McClaren said. “I will bring all of my experience and resources gained from a career in the water industry to represent the population of the District.”
