Thistle Times Editor (Interim) --Chris Brennan

Chris Brennan, who currently serves the SSAS Board as Thistle Times Editor, is a teacher at Mary Institute Country Day School (MICDS) and a squash and water polo coach. He has been involved in the Society in some way for over 35 years ((either as a very young attendee at the summer picnics and Christmas parties, or on the Board), and was the first elected President of the Society not born in Scotland (2006-2007). He has also served the Society as Historian and Thistle Times Editor prior to 2006. Chris had no choice when it came to joining the Society, as it literally is "in his blood"; his grandfather (Thomas J.B. Brennan), great-aunts (Frances "Babs" Stirrat, Agnes Stirrat, and Jean Cobain), and great-uncle (William Stirrat) were some of the earliest members or founders of the Society. His father (Thomas Brennan) hailed from Glasgow and served as President of the Society from 82-84 and 92-94. Chris delivered the Address to the Haggis at last year's Burns Supper (mainly to be able to take home the leftovers from "The Great Chieftain" after the event) and is often and proudly kilted out in the MacMillan kilt first worn by his grandfather. He has a particular fondness for Irn-Bru, bacon butties, and meat pies with mushy peas, but won't refuse a good plate of mince and tatties, either.
