Mount Mary College appoints Sprangers as vice president

Lynn Sprangers has been appointed vice president for communications and community engagement at Mount Mary College in Milwaukee.

Sprangers joined Mount Mary in 2011 as executive in residence for women’s leadership. The new vice president position was developed in response to the increased visibility of the college as it nears its 100th Anniversary and launches its new brand identity in 2013, according to Mount Mary College president Eileen Schwalbach. 
Sprangers will oversee seven marketing and public relations staff that provide marketing and advertising, external communications, media relations, special events, web and social media, and facilities rental services for the college. She and her department will continue to work closely with the development and enrollment teams on future marketing initiatives.
“Lynn’s proven commitment to Mount Mary’s mission and her demonstrated leadership makes her uniquely qualified to serve the College in this new capacity,” Schwalbach said. “We’re excited to see how she will bring her talent and experience to this important new function.”
Sprangers served as a 2010 Campaign Co-Chair for the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and before joining Mount Mary, served in several capacities with the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, including president of Brewers Charities and vice president-community relations and government affairs. Prior to that, she served as Director of Communications for the Milwaukee County Executive’s Office and as co-host of Weekend, a weekly public affairs program, for Wisconsin Public Television. Sprangers also served as an environmental, government and chief political reporter for several television and radio stations in Wisconsin.
