In Evansville, he has been a founding member and Executive Committee member of the Economic Development Coalition of Southwest Indiana and the current Evansville Regional Economic Partnership (E-REP), as well as being the founder, organizer, and current board member for Keep Evansville Beautiful and the Evansville Tree Advisory Board.
“In addition to serving our KDDK clients and involvement with E-REP, I have had the high honor of serving many other regional and state civic and government entities and causes. Giving back to the community remains an enduring and vital part of KDDK’s mission since 1908,” said Schopmeyer.
