Randy King - Mount Rainier National Park
Randy King is the current Superintendent of Mount Rainier
National Park, after being appointed in October 2011. Mount Rainier is Randy’s 8th national park assignment. He has worked all over the US,
and even in a World Heritage Area exchange in Australia.
Randy grew up in Michigan,
and remembers spending most weekends outdoors with his family. His first
experience of the national parks was during an extensive high school road trip
with a cousin through most of the West Coast and the desert Southwest. He holds
a degree from Michigan
State in park and
recreation resources, and during his college summers he worked in state parks.
Randy describes Mount
Rainier National Park
as “a powerful place that encompasses all you would expect from a national
park.” He likes to get outside as much as possible, and still goes out to hike
with his family almost every weekend.
