Gnadinger earned both her Ed.D. in education supervision and her M.Ed. in early education from the University of Louisville. She also holds a B.S. in elementary education from Western Kentucky University.

“Cindy is a leader in the higher education industry, and we are excited to welcome her to Waukesha State Bank’s board of directors,” said Ty Taylor, president and CEO of Waukesha State Bank. “Her impressive experience will be extremely valuable as Waukesha State Bank continues to grow.”

In addition to serving on the corporate board of Waukesha State Bank, Gnadinger also serves on the Waukesha County Business Alliance’s board of directors. Furthermore, she was active in the Louisville, Kentucky community serving as an education committee member with Holy Cross High School and as part of the Bellarmine University President’s cabinet.
