A longtime journalist with strong ties to the community is taking over public relations duties for the State College Area School District.

Chris Rosenblum has accepted a position as the district's director of communications. His hiring was approved by the school board at Monday night's meeting.

“I’m excited about this new chapter,” Rosenblum said in a news release. “It has been a true honor to write about Centre County and its residents for so many years ... I’m looking forward to telling the stories of another vibrant community: the teachers and students who make the district one of the best in the state.”

Rosenblum spent 19 years at the Centre Daily Times working as an assignment editor, columnist and writer. He previously served as a senior news reporter, feature writer and sports writer.

He's also taught journalism courses at Penn State.

Rosenblum's reporting work earned him numerous awards from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association, Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors, and the Press Club of Western Pennsylvania.

“We are thrilled to have Chris join our team,” superintendent Robert J. O’Donnell said in a news release. “Chris is a natural fit for the school district. His expertise in communications and in­-depth knowledge of our community will help us effectively share our students’ accomplishments and district initiatives with the community.”

Rosenblum will begin his new job on Jan. 5, 2015.
