Kevin Fayles Remains Acting Director of State History


As most of you know, we have recently gone through a process to hire a new director for State History. Over the past couple of months, we had a great opportunity to meet a handful of strong candidates for the position and explore the needs of State History. The process has been helpful to allow us to to reevaluate and assess the programs and organizational needs of the agency.

At the end of that process, I have made the decision to keep Kevin Fayles in the Acting Director’s position for the time being. Chris Merritt will continue as director for the State Historical Preservation Office. Our intent is to go back out and recruit a new director next January. I appreciate Kevin’s willingness to continue to lead State History in this interim period.
