SYRCL names new director

The South Yuba River Citizens League has hired a 1990 Nevada Union graduate to be its new executive director.

Jason Rainey, 33, was announced as the new director Saturday night at SYRCL’s annual Laura Wilcox Scholarship Fundraiser Quiz Night. Rainey replaces Janet Cohen, who received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Rainey has experience studying ecological and economic matters in Africa, South America and Russia, where he served in the U.S. Peace Corps. For the last five years, he has been doing ecological work and teaching for the Marin (County) Conservation Corps.
