July 16, 2008|By ERIN CUNNINGHAM

Washington County Public Schools has a new communications officer, replacing Will Kauffman, who officials said has been on paid administrative leave until recently.

Richard Wright, the associate vice president of the tourism division for Tierney Communications, will assume that role in mid-August, said Donna Newcomer, executive director of human resources. Tierney Communications is based in Philadelphia.

Wright's annual salary will be $89,291, Newcomer said.

Newcomer said that Kauffman is still an employee with Washington County Public Schools, but he has been temporarily reassigned. Kauffman had served as the acting communications officer since last year.

He is no longer on paid administrative leave, Newcomer said. She would not say why he was on paid leave, citing personnel matters.
