FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A longtime employee of the National Park Service will oversee three monuments near Flagstaff for the next few months.
Leah McGinnis begins her four-month assignment Thursday as acting superintendent of Wupatki, Sunset Crater Volcano and Walnut Canyon national monuments.
She replaces Diane Chung, who is leaving for a job in Alaska.
McGinnis had been working at Grand Canyon National Park as the chief of staff and just completed a stint as acting deputy superintendent.
She has been employed with the Park Service for almost 25 years.
