Art Frederick is leaving St. John at the end of the month to take a
new position in the National Park Service in Atlanta. He became
superintendent of the VI Park in 2003. Kristen Maize, program manager
for the Friends of the Park, told the Virgin islands Daily News, "We’re very saddened. We’re
definitely going to miss him."
While on the job on island, Frederick oversaw development of a general
plan for the park as well as restoration and renovation of the pavilion
at Hawksnest Beach, and rehabilitation of portions of the North Shore
road. The superintendent of the San Juan National Historic Site in
Puerto Rico will temporarily oversee St. John’s Park until Frederick’s
replacement is identified.
