The new VP 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.
"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," said Eileen Schwalbach, president of Mt. Mary. "We're excited to see how she will bring her talent and experience to this important new function."
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.
Sprangers will also serve on the College's executive leadership council.
