Kym Hall, a 26-year veteran of the National Park Service, is acting Glacier National Park Superintendent until the position is filled permanently. Hall has been at the park since July 2011 as the deputy superintendent.

Glacier National Park Chief Ranger Mark Foust and Chief of Interpretation Tracy Ammerman will share deputy superintendent responsibilities during the interim.

Prior to Glacier National Park, Hall was superintendent of three park sites in Southeastern Arizona; Coronado National Memorial, Chiricahua National Monument, and Fort Bowie National Historic Site. She 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, Hall took a position at the National Park Service headquarters in Washington D.C. where she worked on regulations across the country. While serving in the Washington Office, she was promoted to the position of Special Assistant to the Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks where she represented the National Park Service on a variety of challenging issues, including land use, concessions contracts, weapons in parks and other high-profile topics.

It is anticipated a superintendent for Glacier National Park will be selected this spring. National Park Service Intermountain Regional Director John Wessels will make the selection, with concurrence by the Department of the Interior Secretary's Office.

Chas Cartwright retired at the end of December after serving four years as Glacier National Park Superintendent.
