CHADRON - Chadron Record Editor and longtime journalist Kerri Rempp has been named Dawes County Tourism Director.

The County Travel Board selected Rempp earlier this month and the County Commissioners approved her hiring last week.

Rempp will also serve as tourism director for Sioux County, which pays up to half of the revenue from its tourism lodging tax to Dawes County to share the services of its tourism director.

Rempp begins her new duties as Northwest Nebraska Tourism Director in mid-October.

As Tourism Director, Rempp will promote tourism for the region and serve as the Travel Board’s spokesperson.
