After six years, Chris Trahan, the top spokesman for the East Baton Rouge Parish school system, is leaving to take a job with a local communications firm, according to an announcement from Trahan on Thursday morning.
He said he’s taking a job with Covalent Logic, a local integrated communications firm, as senior corporate communications manager where he will focus on strategy, writing and client relations.
Friday will be his last day as director of communications and community engagement for the school system, the second largest in Louisiana, he said.
Sonya Gordon, the school system’s public information officer, will take over in the interim.
“I have made great, lasting friendships. And each of you has helped me grow professionally here in Baton Rouge,” Trahan said in his parting message.
