Rubright hired by Rutland Chamber

BROOKE RUBRIGHT

RUTLAND — Salisbury native Brooke Rubright recently began work at the Chamber & Economic Development of the Rutland Region (CEDRR) as the organization’s outreach coordinator.

Rubright joined CEDRR (formerly as Rutland Economic Development Corporation prior to the merger with Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce) as an intern in the fall of 2019 overseeing the organization’s online Career Hub.

Following the merger of the two organizations, Rubright stayed through the transition and was brought on as a part-time communications assistant implementing CEDRR’s bi-weekly newsletter, assisting with website updates, various graphic design projects, and much more.

With her graduation from Castleton University fast approaching for Rubright this spring and the organization’s desire to capture Rubright’s talents, CEDRR offered her a new fulltime position as outreach coordinator. In her new role, Rubright will continue to assist in communication efforts while also working to increase membership and identifying ways CEDRR can better serve its member businesses.

“Since the start of her internship, Brooke has shown incredible skills, dedication, and drive that will continue to be an amazing asset to our organization and our broader region,” says CEDRR Executive Director Lyle Jepson. “This is a prime example of the value of internships for students and employers throughout our region. Brooke is joining our staff fulltime with over a year and a half of knowledge and is ready to dive into this work.”

In her final weeks as a part-time employee, Rubright was already preparing for her new role by developing resources for area businesses to learn more about CEDRR and is looking forward to working for our businesses and their families throughout our region.

“I’m very eager to get started,” Rubright said. “Creating packets that outline CEDRR’s work, and the opportunities available for businesses, has helped me better understand my new role. I can’t wait to get out and start meeting new people.”

Rubright worked as an intern for the Addison Independent this past winter. She was recently awarded a Bachelor’s Degree in graphic design and media & communication from Castleton University. She was the recipient of Academic Excellence for the Department of Media & Communications and the University Service Award for her work as President of Castleton Content Lab.
