About the President

The Mahony Family

Mahony Family 2015As Dr. Mahony performs the many responsibilities of the Winthrop presidency, he is thankful for the love and support of his family who reside with him on campus at the President's House.

His wife, Laura, was born and raised in northeastern Ohio.  She attended the University of Cincinnati and earned her B.A. in linguistics. She later graduated from the University of Louisville with a master's degree in social work. While not currently working in the field at this time, she remains a licensed clinical social worker. Laura also has been instrumental in creating the Winthrop Women's Coalition.

Joining Dan and Laura as members of the Winthrop and Rock Hill communities are their children, Gavin and Elena, who both attend Northwestern High School.

The Mahonys are an active family with an emphasis on fitness and health. They are regulars at the West Center on campus, and they enjoy a variety of sports and activities. Both of the Mahony children have earned their black belts in Tae Kwon Do. 

The children's academic interests vary, with Gavin focused on business and finance and Elena enjoying art and other creative outlets.

The family dog is Washington, a Border Collie/Labrador mix.
