The Mensa Foundation has appointed Charlie Steinhice, a lifelong resident of Chattanooga and member of American Mensa for two decades, as vice president of its board of trustees.
“Charlie has a big role to fill and I look forward to working with him as he brings his energy, enthusiasm and leadership to our work,” said Marie Mayer, president of the Mensa Foundation.
Mr. Steinhice joined the Mensa Foundation board of trustees in 2016. He is the manager of medicaid analytics and reporting at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
Outside of work, Mr. Steinhice is a certified testing proctor and a scholarship chair for the Chattanooga chapter of American Mensa. He also is an active volunteer for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, for whom he is the advocacy chair for the Chattanooga affiliate. He has served as chairman of the Chattanooga Neighborhood Network and on the Chattanooga Public Library’s board of directors.
Mr. Steinhice has a master’s degree in library and information science from the University of Tennessee and a graduate certificate in biomedical informatics from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he also earned a bachelor’s in history and served as coach of UTC’s Quizbowl team – "a logical role for a former Jeopardy! contestant who is 'interested in everything,'" officials said.
