The Redmond School District is pleased to announce it has selected Sheila Miller to serve as its new public information officer.
Miller is a longtime Central Oregon journalist. Most recently, she served as the managing editor of Statehood Media, a magazine group based in Bend that puts out titles including 1859 Oregon’s Magazine. Previously, she worked at The Bulletin daily newspaper in Bend for nearly 10 years, first as a reporter and then as the city editor. Miller is an award-winning journalist with a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University.
“The Redmond School District is excited to welcome Sheila Miller onto our team as our new Public Information Officer,” Superintendent Charan Cline said. “Sheila comes to us with many years of experience as a journalist in Central Oregon, during which she had a focus on education and community life. We anticipate Ms. Miller will continue to create clear communication channels with the community we serve.”
Miller replaces Kelly Jenkins, who twice served the district as the communications coordinator and PIO for approximately five years.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the Redmond School District and help the district share information and make sure the public knows all the important work it’s doing,” Miller said.
“I am passionate about public education and children’s issues, and I hope to help the district as it strives to provide a great education to all students.”
Miller started in her new role on Nov. 16.
