OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Just two months after Sue McGill assumed Olympic National Park’s No. 2 post, she’ll become No. 1 — at least temporarily.
The resignation of Superintendent David Morris, who leaves Jan. 27 to train for a Peace Corps job in Africa, puts McGill in the role of acting superintendent.
National Park Service officials announced last week that McGill, 48, would fill the top position until a replacement for Morris is found.
“Dave leaving is a good opportunity for me to get my feet on the ground faster,” she said. “I am sure I will learn a lot during the next few months.
“We are very sorry to see Dave go. I will rely on the exceptional park staff to help me.”
Late last year, McGill replaced Assistant Superintendent Roger Rudolph, who retired in February.
