Brown v. Board of Education historic site gets new superintendent

May 4, 2011


— The Brown v. Board of Education site in Topeka will have a new superintendent, beginning July 3.

The National Park Service appointed David Smith, a legislative affairs specialist for the agency, as the new superintendent.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Wednesday that Smith worked at several national monuments and parks and the U.S. Border Patrol before moving to work with the agency in Washington D.C.

The Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site commemorates the 1954 Supreme Court decision that ended segregation in public schools.

He'll replace Cheryl Brown Henderson, who resigned in December to rejoin the Brown Foundation.
