Sheila McDoniel

Chief Operating Officer


I grew up in Dallas/Fort Worth and have lived here my whole life, with the exception of my time at Abilene Christian University, where I received my BBA in Marketing. Our family has been at CCA since 2002, and two of my three children have graduated here (Reagan '15 and Maci '21). For many years, I volunteered in all different areas of the school, including Booster Club, Room Mom Coordinator, and leading the Auction for nine years. I've been on staff since 2014. It is so cool to see my years of experience in Corporate America, volunteering, and even as an entrepreneur all come together in the COO role the Lord has placed me in at CCA.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A Singer

Why do you choose to work at CCA? Because I am passionate about what we do here and the results I see from a Covenant education!

What is one fun fact about you? One Summer in college, I traveled around the US in a singing group of 5, where our goal was to promote Christian education. I guess that was a foreshadowing of what God had for me here.

What is your favorite book of all time? Love Does by Bob Goff - It inspires me to love like Jesus and not worry about what could/should happen.

What is one thing that can instantly make your day better? Coffee and time with a fun friend

What do you like to do for fun? Travel and spend time with family/friends!
