RSD Hires New PIO Rainer Butler
Redmond, Ore — The Redmond School District (RSD) has selected Rainier Butler of Dillon, Mont. to serve as its new Public Information Officer, Superintendent Mike McIntosh announced today.
Butler most recently served as the Public Relations Manager for the University of Montana Western, a small, innovative university in southwest Montana.
“We’re very pleased Rainier is coming on board with the RSD,” McIntosh said. “His experience in communications and public relations in both the public and private sector will serve the needs of the district well.”
Butler previously served as a Communications Coordinator for Snohomish County in Washington State and as spokesperson for a former Speaker of the Oregon House.
He will replace Kelly Jenkins who served as Public Information Officer for the district for nearly four years.
“I’m looking forward to taking on this opportunity with the RSD,” Butler said. “The Redmond area is a beautiful place with great schools and I’m excited to work for a district with a stellar reputation for putting the education of its children first.”
He will assume his new responsibilities in February 2017.
The Redmond School District Communications Office is available to assist with news, information about the district and distributing vital information to our community.
