WINSTED, MN As a longtime advocate for Holy Trinity Parish and School in Winsted, Andrew Meuleners is excited to take his support to a new level as the school’s development and marketing director.
“The reason I wanted to work for Holy Trinity is because I love the family feeling you get when you walk into the building,” Andrew noted. “You get this sense of the great tradition behind it all, but you also get this sense of new possibilities and future generations of students yet to come. It has a great energy.”
Andrew has a degree in marketing communications from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and career experience in recruiting and fundraising.
His first position after college was as a human resources generalist for a fundraising group in Hastings.
For the past 12 years, Andrew has been part of the management team at AT&T in Bloomington.
Andrew and his wife, Tiffany, moved to Winsted nine years ago in order to be near family. (Andrew’s parents, Joan and James, live in Watertown, and several other relatives are also in the area.)
Through church at Holy Trinity, Andrew and Tiffany became friends with Holy Trinity’s previous development and marketing director, Angie Hertel.
“Angie convinced me to join the communications and development committee,” Andrew said. “That’s how I got more involved in the school.”
Tiffany, who has an extensive background in childcare and early childhood development, was hired as director of Holy Trinity’s childcare center in 2011. Currently, she teaches kindergarten at St. Pius X Catholic School in Glencoe.
Andrew and Tiffany are also involved in HT through their son, Nicholas, who will enter third grade this fall. The youngest member of the Meuleners family, 3-year-old Owen, will have an opportunity to join his brother soon.
“I love the fact that HT is a pre-k through 12th-grade Christian-based education system rooted in the teaching of the Catholic church,” Andrew noted.
To schedule a tour of Holy Trinity School, contact Andrew at (320) 485-5652 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I look forward to seeing lots of new faces and showing people how great it is to be part of the Holy Trinity family,” he said.
