Scott Butterworth

I am director of communications at National Cathedral School, overseeing internal and external outreach for an independent school serving 585 girls in grades 4 through 12 in Washington, DC.

My team of three informs the school's wide community -- students, parents, faculty, staff, neighbors and other friends -- about upcoming events and recent accomplishments. We do this through news stories for the NCS website, which we then highlight through social media, and articles and photography for our semiannual magazine. (Here is a recent article I wrote for NCS Magazine.) Recently we have begun producing videos about school life.

I joined NCS in 2015 after more than 25 years in daily newspaper journalism. Most of that time was at The Washington Post, where my posts included Editorial copy chief, National and Foreign night editor, Metro assignment editor, and Style copy editor. I also worked as a reporter and then a copy editor for newspapers large and small in Texas, Washington state and Nevada. (Details about my professional background is at LinkedIn.)

In 2016, I was an editor of Ann Hornaday's book Talking Pictures: How to Watch Movies (Basic Books).

I am expert at publishing through many platforms (CCI, DTI, Quark XPress, Atex) and content-management systems (Methode, Movable Type, WordPress, Blackbaud OnMessage), and I am proficient with photo, audio, and video editing software.
