Mindi Snyder and her husband Jeff live in the rural city of El Campo where she was raised.  They enjoy spending time with their children, Shelby (who married Colby Kane) and Colby Lee who is married to Morgan, and their beloved grandsons Matthew and Watson.  They are also excited to be welcoming another grandson, Jackson, in the fall.  All love outdoor activities and traveling.  Mindi is a CPA and is now working with Gunda Corporation as a Client Services Manager after 24 years in Municipal Government roles as Finance Director and City Manager. 

Mindi joined Rotary in 1995 and has been a member of Wharton, Rosenberg, and El Campo Rotary Clubs where she served in many roles including Club President for 2004-2005. El Campo Rotary chartered two Interact Clubs at the High School and Middle School and started an EarlyAct FirstKnight Character Development program under her direction as New Generations Chair.  One of her continued roles for many years in El Campo has been Foundation Chair and she was very proud that El Campo Rotary achieved 100% PHF status. 

 

Mindi served as Assistant Governor twice and has been on the District Youth Exchange Committee and served in various roles from Inbound Coordinator to Youth Exchange Officer since 2001.   Mindi and Jeff have hosted many Rotary Exchange Students and their daughter did a short-term exchange to The Netherlands. 

 

As the Chief of Staff Youth Services, Mindi helped facilitate the communication between all youth service areas and District Leadership and as Club Advisor for the community-based Rotaract Club of El Campo and the newly chartered El Campo Literacy Advocates Rotary Club.  Jeff has been a long-time supporter, chaperone, and driver for the Youth Exchange Students at the District level and he transferred his membership to the El Campo Rotary Club this year so both are excited to be serving our community together going forward.

 

Mindi has been recognized as Rotarian of the Year twice by the El Campo Rotary Club in 2004 and 2019 and, most recently she received the District Rotarian of the Year honor for 2018-2019.

 

Mindi and Jeff are both Paul Harris Society Members, Polio Plus Society Members, Major Donor Level II and Bequest Society Level I donors to the Rotary Foundation.  Jeff and Mind were recognized as members of the White Hat Society last year.
