Kym Hall Begins Temporary Assignment as Superintendent of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Rainbow Bridge National Monument
Kym Hall, with over 23-years of federal service, was selected to serve as the Acting Superintendent of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Rainbow Bridge National Monument. She began her assignment in Page on August 23 and will be in place until a permanent Superintendent is selected. She replaces Stan Austin, who transferred this week to the Superintendent position at Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio.
"Kym's background and knowledge make her a perfect candidate to fill in while a search is conducted for a permanent superintendent," said Austin. "I know this community and park staff will support and welcome her."
Hall began her career with the National Park Service in 1986 as an administrative clerk. She quickly developed an interest in law enforcement and spent almost 14 years as a radio dispatcher, legal assistant, evidence technician and paralegal, focused on helping to prosecute crimes committed on park service lands.
In 2000, Hall moved to Washington, D.C. where she worked in the regulations office of the National Park Service, rewriting the agency boating regulations, personal watercraft and off road vehicle regulations. In 2002 she accepted a position as a special assistant to the Assistant Secretary of the Interior, providing special project oversight and policy guidance on National Park Service issues. Most recently, Hall served as the Superintendent of Chiricahua National Monument, Coronado National Memorial and Fort Bowie National Historic Site in southeastern Arizona.
Hall is a native of southern California but spent most of her life in the Pacific Northwest. Kym is married to Steve Hall and they have three boys, ages 13, 9 and 18 months.
