The Office of Advancement has welcomed two new staff members in the past few months.
Cassandra Schmidt began July 1 as assistant to the director of development, replacing Gail Marsh.
Cassandra grew up in North Newton and still lives there. She graduated from Newton High School, taking art and design classes at Bethel as a high school student. She has owned and operated her own photography business, Strikker Images, for six years and she has an almost-4-year-old daughter, Chloe.
With Fred Goering’s retirement (see page 31), there has been some adjustment in job descriptions. Matt Hein ’09, formerly associate director of development, is now director of development, while Rob Schunn ’86 began Aug. 7 as annual fund director.
In between leaving Bethel upon graduation and coming back to Bethel as staff, Rob spent 29 years working for KWCH- Channel 12 in Wichita as a camera operator and most recently a multimedia journalist (see page 13).
