By Beacon Staff

WEST GLACIER (AP) – The superintendent of Glacier National Park has announced he will retire in early January.

Mick Holm has been Glacier’s superintendent since 2002 and has worked for the National Park Service for more than 32 years, serving at six parks in five states.

He came to Glacier after serving as superintendent at Carlsbad Caverns National Park from 2000 through July 2002.

Holm says one of his most emotional moments during his park service career occurred in September, when he was named an honorary chief of the Blackfeet Tribe and given the tribal name Spii Piita, which means High Eagle.
