Mindy Wendele to Head Schreiner Mansion for SU

Mindy Wendele, a Kerrville native, recently has accepted the position of director of the Schreiner Mindy WendeleMansion and community engagement with Schreiner University and will join the team on June 3.

Wendele has served as a Kerrville elected official, on city staff as the director of business programs, has owned her own business and, most recently, served as the director of the West Kerr County Chamber of Commerce.

She attended Schreiner College and has volunteered with Schreiner University for many years.

“I am really looking forward to getting back to downtown Kerrville and exploring the possibilities for the Mansion,” Wendele said. “The building is such a treasure to our community. We should celebrate this fact through creative programming.”

Mark Tuschak, vice president of advancement services, is looking forward to Wendele joining the Schreiner family and the skill set she brings to the table.

“Mindy is a perfect match for the director of the Schreiner Mansion position. She is a Kerrville native that has built many positive relationships through her business experience and years of service at the City of Kerrville,” Tuschak said. “She was responsible for establishing the Kerrville Main Street program, has an interest in the history of our city and region, and has the management and organization skills to take the programing at the Mansion to a higher level of success.”

As this will be her first time working in higher education, Wendele is ready to get to work on sharing the mansion with residents, tourists and corporate visitors.
“Schreiner University has a reputation as being a wonderful place to work,” she said. “Since this is my first venture into working in higher education, I'm looking forward to marrying the business world with the University world.”
