King MCCA XLIV: Jamey Sheridan

Beyond his professional accomplishments, Sheridan has been a dedicated member of the MCCA for twelve years, serving in various capacities, including treasurer, lieutenant, and duke of Wahoo. His commitment to community service extends to his involvement with Annunciation Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, the Open Road Cruisers car club, and serving on the Bogalusa Country Club Board.

An outdoors enthusiast, Sheridan enjoys fishing, hunting, and river outings with friends and his faithful retriever, Tank. He is eagerly anticipating a vibrant and joyful reign as MCCA King XLIV.
