Fullwood promoted to east district superintendent for state parks system

Raleigh -- John Fullwood, formerly the superintendent at Goose Creek State Park, has been promoted to east district superintendent for the state parks system, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation.

He succeeds Adrian O’Neal, who was promoted to chief of operations in November.

As one of four district superintendents, Fullwood will be responsible for operations, resource management, environmental education programming, law enforcement, safety and facility maintenance for eight state parks in North Carolina’s coastal region.

“As a ranger and superintendent, John has gathered the full range of experience in our state parks system, especially in the areas of environmental education and natural resource management in the coastal region,” said Mike Murphy, state parks director. “He is highly qualified for the range of challenges that a district superintendent encounters in a growing state parks system.”

Fullwood has served as Goose Creek State Park’s superintendent since 2011. A native of Raleigh, Fullwood earned a bachelor’s degree in leisure sciences and resource management from East Carolina University in 1992. Having worked as a seasonal employee at Jockey’s Ridge State Park, he joined the division as a ranger at that park upon graduation. In 2006, he transferred to Fort Macon State Park and was promoted to advanced ranger in 2009. He holds certifications in environmental education and advanced law enforcement.
