About the District Governor:

Kristine Ina Winter is a retired civil engineer. She spent the majority of her career in highway administration with the Nebraska Department of Roads, working from the field positions of surveyor and construction observer to designer and back to the field as construction engineer and ending with the position of District Engineer.

Working with the public to achieve timely and cost-efficient projects is what she enjoyed best in her professional life. Public works projects are complex and involve many people and organizations working hand-to-hand to make worthwhile results. It is this experience that she intends to use in her role as District Governor.

Ina’s Rotary journey began in Norfolk, Nebraska in 2002. She served her club as Treasurer and President and worked with District 5650 as Membership Chair. After retiring from professional pursuits, Ina moved with her husband Brad Winter to Hot Springs, South Dakota where she immediately joined the Hot Springs Rotary Club. She just finished her second term as club president, this time with her new club. She has also just finished a three-year term with District 5610 as District Grants Subcommittee Chair.

Ina has traveled to Africa four times on humanitarian missions. Once with Engineers Without Borders for a water project in Uganda and the other three times with Rotary teams involved in National Immunization Days.

Ina is a Paul Harris Fellow, a Paul Harris Society Member, and a Major Donor. She resides in Hot Springs with her husband Brad.
