Jordan named new top ranger

Written by 

Clayton Jordan is the new Chief Ranger for Resource and Visitor Protection at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

“I am honored and excited for the opportunity to join the team at the Smokies,” said newly appointed Chief Ranger Jordan. “The park has an incredible staff with a great reputation for accomplishing so much every year to protect this world class park and to provide a safe, enjoyable experience for the millions of visitors who come to experience it.”

Jordan comes to this position most recently from Gulf Islands National Seashore, Fla.-Miss., where he served as the chief ranger since November 2006. He also played a vital role in the unified command of the recent Mississippi Canyon oil spill response along the Mississippi-Alabama-Florida coast. He was the U.S. Department of Interior’s second-in-command to the joint federal, state and private effort, as well as being a point person to NPS Director Jon Jarvis during this effort.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
