Rick Redican to leave Bordewich-Bray

Rick Redican, vice principal of Bordewich-Bray Elementary School, will appear before the St. Teresa School Board on Tuesday to be approved as the school’s principal.

“I have mixed feelings about leaving (Bordewich-Bray),” Redican said. “There’s a great staff and great students. It’s just time to move on.”

Bordewich-Bray Principal Kirk Kinne announced his plans to retire earlier this year. Despite staff support to have Redican replace Kinne, the Carson City School District chose Eagle Valley Middle School Vice Principal Sue Keema for the job.

Plans for Redican’s move to the private school around the corner from the school where he works were announced at a retirement party for Kinne on March 22.

Redican moved to Carson City as a seventh-grader in 1958. He graduated from Carson High School in 1963 and received a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Nevada, Reno in 1968.

From 1968 to 1973, he taught science at Carson Junior High – the building which is now Bordewich-Bray Elementary – and from 1973 to 1995, he taught physical education at Carson Junior High and later Carson Middle School.

He became vice-principal of Bordewich-Bray Elementary School in 1995 where he has worked with Kinne.

Redican, a member of St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church, will replace Madeline Brennan who is retiring as principal of the school which houses grades 1-8.
