Virginia Beach resident appointed
director of government and community relations

NORFOLK, Va. – (June 25, 2004) – Tidewater Community College announces the appointment of David S. Redmond as director of government and community relations.

Most recently Redmond served as executive director of Smart Region Hampton Roads, a non-profit community and economic development project of Hampton Roads Partnership, Norfolk. He worked with leaders in business, government and education from across the region promoting initiatives to enhance the region’s economic competitiveness and improve its quality of life.

Redmond has extensive experience in legislative communications, with 14 years devoted to Congressional work in Washington, D.C. He began his career as a legislative correspondent for Congressman G. William Whitehurst and went on to be assistant press secretary and legislative assistant to Congressman Wally Herger, press secretary to Congressman Robert F. (Bob) Smith, chief of staff for Congressman Wes Cooley, communications director for the House of Representatives’ Committee on Agriculture, and chief of staff for Congresswoman Sue Myrick.

“Mr. Redmond will be a marvelous addition to the TCC administrative team, particularly in our outreach to the many constituencies we serve,” says TCC President Deborah DiCroce. “And his local roots as a graduate of Cox High School and the College of William and Mary are certain to be a value-added.”

His professional accomplishments include being named a 2003 SunTrust Foundation Fellow, Thomas C. Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership, University of Virginia; serving as a member of the Task Force on E-Communities, Governor’s Commission on Information Technology, Virginia; and receiving a 2000-2001 Leadership Hampton Roads award, Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce.

Redmond resides with his wife, Kathleen, and daughter, Jill Elizabeth, in Virginia Beach.
