New Rainer leader named

— The National Park Service has selected Palmer “Chip” Jenkins, Jr., to be the next superintendent at Mount Rainier National Park. Jenkins replaces Randy King who retired in January.

 ”Chip brings with him his years of experience working in the Pacific Northwest,” said Martha Lee, acting regional director for the Pacific West Region. “His leadership acumen and established rapport with many key partners in Washington state will serve the park well.”

Jenkins is a 31-year veteran of the National Park Service.
