FLAGSTAFF, AZ (AP) -

A longtime employee of the National Park Service will oversee three monuments near Flagstaff for the next few months.

Leah McGinnis begins her four-month assignment Thursday as acting superintendent of Wupatki, Sunset Crater Volcano and Walnut Canyon national monuments.

She replaces Diane Chung, who is leaving for a job in Alaska.

McGinnis had been working at Grand Canyon National Park as the chief of staff and just completed a stint as acting deputy superintendent.

She has been employed with the Park Service for almost 25 years.
