Glacier National Park’s deputy superintendent is leaving Montana to take over as chief of Colonial National Historical Park in Virginia.
Kym Hall has been deputy superintendent at Glacier since 2011 and served temporarily as acting superintendent in 2013.
Hall began her National Park Service career at Olympic National Park on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. After a variety of positions, including dispatcher and paralegal, she took a position at the National Park Service headquarters in Washington, D.C., where she worked on regulations across the country. Later, Hall was superintendent of three small park sites in southeastern Arizona; Coronado National Memorial, Chiricahua National Monument, and Fort Bowie National Historic Site.
“We’re very excited about the tremendous experience and leadership skills that Kym brings to Colonial National Historical Park. Her extensive background and passion for working collaboratively will serve her well as she energizes and expands the park’s partnerships,” said National Park Service Northeast Regional Director Mike Caldwell in a press release. “At Glacier, she successfully tackled a wide range of issues; from highway and road operations, to concessions and partner management. As acting superintendent, she also spent considerable time working with park staff, leading planning efforts, and building teamwork and organizational effectiveness.”
Colonial National Historical Park is located near Williamsburg, Virginia and preserves the history of the nation’s earliest colony.
