A 20-year year veteran of Nebraska Game and Parks has been named the new superintendent of Chadron State Park. Gregg Galbraith of Louisville has been assistant superintendent at Platte River State Park for 13 years.
Galbraith will begin his new duties March 10. He succeeds Dave Kinnamon, who left late last summer after 6 years to be superintendent at Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area in northeastern Nebraska.
Galbraith is a native of Crete whoe earned a bachelor’s degree in natural resources from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in December 1993 and joined Game and Parks as a groundskeeper at Mahoney State Park near Ashland the following year.
He soon advanced to groundskeeper supervisor at Mahoney, a job he had for 7 years before moving to Platte River State Park.
Galbraith will transition to his new duties by alternating weeks between Platte River and Chadron State Park for the next 10 weeks, taking over full-time at Chadron State Park in mid-May. He and his wife Jennifer have a daughter, Kayley, 11, and a son, Caden, 9.
