National Park Service turns 100

Steve McCoy has been with the National Park Service for 32 years, working everywhere from Alaska to the Everglades. His last four years have been spent at Gulf Islands National Seashore as the deputy superintendent and he was on hand at Naval Live Oaks Thursday for NPS’ centennial celebration.

With a cake, party favors and a birthday card visitors could sign, McCoy smiled as he talked about what it means to him to be involved with something that is part of the fabric of American history.

“When you look at all of the wonderful things we’ve done and everything we have from historic battlefields and homes to seashores and the Smoky Mountains, to see us get to this point is amazing,” McCoy said. “It also makes you think about the next century will look like and think about how we can do things better and how we can do more.”
