Chancellor Ric said of Redd, “I am thrilled about the appointment of Scott Redd, Jr. as the new president for RTS/Washington, D.C. Scott caught the attention of many of us as a student and later as a faculty and staff member at RTS/Orlando. He will bring enthusiasm and vigor as well as leadership and vision to this strategic campus in the capital of our country. Scott is just the right man ‘for such a time as this’.”
Michael Milton, chancellor-elect said, “I am so thankful for the appointment of Professor Scott Redd to become president of RTS/Washington D.C. His background in business, pastoral ministry, campus leadership, and his passion to preach and cast a biblical vision is a tremendous blessing to RTS as a whole and to our nation's capital in particular.”
Redd will continue to teach through this academic year in his current position at the RTS/Orlando campus. During this time, he plans to complete his Doctor of Philosophy degree in Semitic and Egyptian Languages and Literatures from The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C.
