After a three-month vacancy, Grand Teton National Park has announced the selection of a new Deputy Superintendent. Kevin Schneider is currently Superintendent of White Sands National Monument in Alamagordo, New Mexico; but Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says he served in Yellowstone National Park from 2000 until 2005 and returned for a temporary assignment in 2010. As such, Skaggs says he will be in an excellent position to carry on the close ties between the two parks. Skaggs says the Deputy position has oversight of all the park divisions being responsible for the day-to-day, “nuts-and-bolts” management and operations of the park in support of the superintendent. Schneider will move to Jackson Hole with his wife and 2-year-old daughter, assuming his post December fourth.
