The New Braunfels Chamber’s Business-Education Partnership Committee closed out 2015 with a pancake breakfast meeting held in Honors Hall. Roy Linnartz, Committee Chair, presided at the meeting and was the pancake chef. With more than 22 members in attendance, Linnartz led a year in review discussion about the successes that the BEP had in 2015.
One of those successes is the very popular “Kits for Kids” program (pictured), headed up by Chris Snider of Texas Tito’s. Snider reported more than 350 bags were prepared to distribute more than 900 books at the last meeting. Chris Snider will take on the reins as the new BEP Chair in 2016 and the group welcomed Shannon Dixon of Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas as the 2016 Vice Chair. Snider recognized Linnartz for his two years as the Committee Chair, and thanked him for the many pancakes he has prepared during the past four years.
The Business-Education Partnership Committee acts as the education advocate for the community, acting on the recommendations of the Mayor’s Higher Education Task Force.
