State board names new communications chief

Idaho's state Board of Education has named Marilyn Whitney its new chief communications and legislative affairs officer, replacing Mark Browning, who left for a position as a vice president at North Idaho College. Whitney was formerly the statewide community outreach coordinator for the Idaho National Laboratory; she previously spent 15 years in corporate communications at Micron Technology and two years at the Idaho Department of Fish & Game. Mike Rush, state board executive director, said Whitney was selected from "a pool of highly qualified applicants." She holds both bachelor's and master's degrees from Boise State University; you can see the board's full announcement here. Whitney will be paid $75,300, the same salary Browning received.
