Ranger Killed In Off-Duty Accident

Fort Smith National Historic Site

National Park News

Amy Garrett, a park ranger at Fort Smith, was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident during a heavy rainstorm east of Fort Smith, Arkansas, on October 6th.  In addition to being an outstanding interpreter and education specialist, Amy enthusiastically supported the interpretive development program as a peer-review certifier. She received the Freeman Tilden national award in 2003 for her work in bringing distance learning to the forefront of education. Garrett, a ten-year veteran with the NPS, previously worked at Central High School NHS, Homestead NM, Death Valley NP, and Yellowstone NP. Her positive, cheerful attitude and a great enthusiasm for interpretation made her a shining star in the NPS. There will be a private service for the family.  A memorial website has been established to share stories and photographs: http://www.sympathytree.com/amygarrett1961/ . A memorial fund has been set up.  Donations can be sent to the Amy Garrett Memorial Fund, Regions Bank, 5400 Rogers Avenue, Fort Smith, AR 72903.
