30-year park veteran to head Golden Spike

BRIGHAM CITY — Margaret Johnston, a 30-year veteran of the National Park Service, has been named superintendent of the Golden Spike National Historic Site at Brigham City.

"I am so excited to return to Utah and honored to serve as the superintendent of Golden Spike National Monument," Johnson said in a press release.

Johnston began her career in 1975 at California's Golden Gate National Recreation Area. She has worked at the Statue of Liberty National Monument, Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park, Point Reyes National Seashore, Death Valley and Canyonlands national parks, and for the last seven years as park manager at Capulin Volcano National Monument in New Mexico.

She succeeds Mary Risser, who earlier in the year accepted a position as the superintendant of Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado.
