Mark Schremmer

Associate Editor

Another great snag, we landed Mark in 2015. An award-winning journalist and former assistant news editor at The Topeka Capital-Journal, he brings fresh ideas, solid reporting skills, and nearly two decades of journalism experience to our staff. As associate editor, Mark assists in directing the editorial content of the magazine and finding that balance important to our readers and members of OOIDA. Fun fact about Mark: Most of us are jealous because he got to cover the Royals when they played in the World Series in 2014.

Got an idea for the magazine? Let Mark know.
