Seneca Falls, NY-- Noemi "Ami" Ghazala has been selected as the new superintendent of Women's Rights National Historical Park (NHP). She replaces Tammy Duchense, who recently was named superintendent of Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park in Hawai'i.
"Ami is a visionary and dynamic leader who will transition easily into her new role as superintendent," said National Park Service (NPS) Northeast Regional Director Dennis R. Reidenbach. "She places a high priority on working with communities and her passion for reaching out to new audiences through education and engagement is exemplary."
Ghazala most recently served as the chief of interpretation at Women's Rights NHP, where she focused efforts on reaching out to underrepresented visitors to the park and making the park a family-friendly environment. "I am honored to become superintendent of Women's Rights National Historical Park," said Ghazala. "I look forward to continuing our community-outreach efforts."
Ghazala's journey with the NPS began in 2001 at the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island Immigration Museum where she worked to highlight the forgotten stories of immigrants - at "The Island of Hope/The Island of Tears." In 2008, she transferred to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve in Louisiana. As Education Coordinator and later District Supervisor, she focused efforts on partnering with local schools to bring urban children to their local national park, working closely with low-performing schools and communities-of-color.
In 2010, Ghazala was promoted to chief of education and resource management at Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park where she worked closely with park partners and was instrumental in reaching out to local universities to provide meaningful internships that benefited both students and the park. In 2012, Ghazala became the Chief of Interpretation and Education at Women's Rights NHP.
