Denice Swanke, who has been superintendent of Little Bighorn Battlefield for the past four years, has been reassigned as the deputy superintendent of Denali National Park and Preserve in Denali Park, Alaska. Swanke said in a National Park Service press release, "I am passionate about the National Park Service mission and look forward to opportunities to share that excitement with the many communities of Denali staff, partners and neighbors."

There is no word of a replacement at the Little Bighorn and Swanke said she was doubtful any would be named soon. "Nothing moves fast so I don't know who will be replacing me."

Denice will be missed at the Little Bighorn Battlefield as she has worked with the Association as well as the Custer Battlefield Preservation Committee.
