Karen Schwendeman, Administrative Professional 
Buildings & Grounds Department 

The Buildings & Grounds Department is pleased to recommend Karen Schwendeman as the Wayzata Public School Employee of the Month.

The Employee of the Month should be someone who stands out amongst their peers and makes a difference. Karen Schwendeman has been that person.

Karen has served as the Administrative Professional for the Buildings & Grounds Department since June of 2016. Her unsurpassed commitment to excellence has earned the respect and gratitude of her colleagues, and district administrators and staff. Karen has a great “can do” attitude that is very contagious for anyone who has worked with her. You often hear people ask, “who helps keep everything running smoothly?” From a district operation’s perspective, that is an easy answer …. Karen does. She has a great understanding of what it takes to do a good job.

That understanding, coupled with her attitude and willingness to go the extra mile, is why Karen Schwendeman is being honored as the October 2023 Employee of the Month.
