D-R Hires New Athletic Director


Matt McKinnon has been hired to serve as the Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District’s Director of Athletics and Activities, effective July 1. Superintendent Bill Runey said the decision comes after a thorough selection process conducted by a district screening committee and Central Office.

“Mr. McKinnon’s extensive background in education and athletic administration, coupled with his passion for student engagement, makes him an ideal fit for this pivotal role,” Runey said in a statement Friday. “His dedication to fostering a positive and inclusive environment aligns seamlessly with the values of our district. His innovative ideas and proven track record make him an invaluable addition to our District Leadership Team. I am confident that under his guidance, our students will thrive.”

“I’d like to thank the screening committee, Superintendent Runey, and the entire Dighton-Rehoboth administration for this tremendous opportunity to join the #WeAreDR community,” said McKinnon. “This is a vibrant, passionate, and hard working district, and I look forward to embodying that spirit in everything we do.  We will strive for excellence on and off the playing surfaces to help these young adults become the leaders of tomorrow.” 

Runey said McKinnon will be formally introduced to the community at an upcoming School Committee meeting, where “he will have the opportunity to share his vision for the future of athletics and activities within the district.”
