Owner and Innkeeper: Becky Schroeder Hodges

Becky retired in 2010 from the Midway Independent School District after 25 years of teaching. She taught broadcast journalism, speech, debate, English and career development classes. She spent most of her teaching career being in charge of Midway’s debate program. She coached many state debate champions and individual speaking event winners. She also coached the Midway Mock Trial team to numerous state appearances and final rounds.

Innkeepers: Dutch and Betty Schroeder

Dutch has been the breakfast “waiter-in-training” since the opening of the inn. He retired in 1999 from Baylor University’s School of Education where he had been a professor in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Department for 42 years. He was the head coach of the Baylor Bears baseball team for 16 years. He has been associated with Baylor’s letter winners organization – the “B” Association since 1968, holding a number of positions. If you are a fan of Baylor University, its' sports history or just sports in general, you will enjoy listening to his stories (and tall tales) every morning at breakfast!  Betty retired from the Waco Independent School District where she taught for 32 years.
