Financial management is important for all organizations, and charter schools are no exception. That’s part of why Scott Kringle is such a valuable member of the MTCS board, where he has served as a community representative since 2012.
Kringle brought with him the financial experience gained in his 35 year career with Wells Fargo in the financial industry, primarily in international banking, which included service in Hong Kong and Taipei.
“Students are our number one priority,” said Kringle, who resides in Northeast Minneapolis. He explains that from a finance and management perspective attracting and enrolling students in MTCS schools is important, but they also must receive quality education.
Describing his time on the MTCS board, Kringle said it’s been very enlightening. “I think I was able to bring a bit of a finance perspective, but it opened my eyes to the many issues that need to be addressed.”
He notes that MTCS must always be fiscally responsible.
In addition to contributing to the work of the MTCS board, Kringle gives his time to other nonprofit groups, most notably the “Prepare and Prosper” organization that assists taxpayers with their filings.
Kringle and his wife have two adult children who live in the area.
