A new management team is settling in at Cheaha State Park, just in time for the prime season for Alabama’s highest point to show off its spectacular autumn scenery.

Justin Howard is the new superintendent at Cheaha and Callie Thornton will serve as assistant superintendent. Renee Raney is park operations supervisor while Mandy Pearson continues in her role as park naturalist.

Pearson started in her role in mid-2016, while Howard took the reins as superintendent on Aug. 16, 2017. Thornton and Raney came on board May 1.The new team is working on projects and plans to reinvigorate the park, which has faced challenges from budget restraints in the past. New kitchen equipment has been installed and repair work on the swimming pool is nearing completion. Infrastructure work that had been delayed is also ongoing with results that will make enjoying Cheaha easier, but will unlikely be noticed by visitors.
