Arizona’s top prep school, the Orme School in northern Arizona signed with KB Woods Public Relations today in a long-term marketing and public relations agreement. “Orme School has been a leader in the national boarding school movement for more than 75 years,” said Orme’s development director Stuart Rosebrook. “We have attracted a diverse student body from around the world who attend Orme every year. Even though Arizona’s economy is slow to rebound from the last recession, Orme thinks Arizona families should make up a larger part of the student population. That’s why we have hired KB Woods Public Relationsto help guide us with our Arizona and national public relations campaign.”
Keith Woods, president of KB Woods Public Relations, is an alumnus of the Orme School, as was his mother. “As a former student at Orme Keith knows our product. As someone who gets value-added marketing and promotions, along with everything else, we think he can really hit the ground running for us” Rosebrook commented.
