Timpanogos Cave National Monument is getting a new superintendent: Sue McGill, who after 15 years with the National Park Service has done everything from giving guided tours to driving a backhoe.
McGill, the first woman appointed superintendent of the Timpanogos Cave, will assume her position on April 21."Timpanogos Cave sets new challenges before me - the first, of course, being replacing the burned-out visitors center," McGill said.
McGill replaces Michael O. Hill, who has been superintendent at the monument since April 1988. Hill is going to Washington, D.C. for two years as the recipient of the Bevinetto Congressional Fellowship.
While in Washington, Hill will work in a congressional office for one year and then spend the second year as a trainee in the National Park Service's Division of Legislation.
At Timpanogos Cave, McGill will supervise seven permanent employees and 20 seasonal employees.
McGill, 37, has worked in 10 National Park Service areas, including Everglades National Park in Florida, the USS Arizona Memorial in Hawaii and as the chief of maintenance at Bryce Canyon National Park.
Since November 1990, McGill has been acting superintendent at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument in Colorado.
