Robin is joining the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education

The Appointments Project inspired me to apply for this position, and I’m so glad I did. Higher education is a passion of mine, and it’s so important for women to have a seat at the table where these decisions are made. Serving on the Coordinating Board for Higher Education has been a tremendous honor, and I’d encourage any woman with an interest in public service to raise their hand to serve.

Robin Wenneker was appointed to serve on the CBHE by Gov. Mike Parson in August 2019. Wenneker is the managing partner for her family-owned multi-county property management company with farm, rental and raw land holdings. She brings extensive involvement in the community to her position, serving on the University of Missouri College of Agriculture’s Food and Natural Resources Foundation, the University of Missouri Alumni Association, Assistance League of Mid Missouri, Children’s Grove, and the Columbia Housing Authority.

Wenneker holds a bachelor’s degree in administrative management from the University of Missouri, and a master’s degree in business administration from Washington University.
