Jarrod McCartney

Director, Red Cloud Tourism and Commerce

Jarrod was named the Heritage Tourism Development Director effective June 22, 2015. McCartney's position is the result of a collaboration between the Willa Cather Foundation, the Red Cloud Community Foundation Fund, the City of Red Cloud, and the Red Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce, all of whom recognized the need for an economic development professional. McCartney holds a bachelor's degree in English and Philosophy from Hastings College, a Master's degree in English from Kansas State University and is a PhD candidate in English and Rural Studies at the University of Oklahoma. McCartney's academic work is centered on a political analysis of Cather's oeuvre, particularly her engagement with Populist rhetoric.
