It feels like home to Michael Creasey (LF 10), who has just moved back to Boston to assume leadership of the national park collaborative that includes Boston National Historical Park, Boston African American National Historic Site and the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. Prior to his recent roles with Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, the National Park Service Stewardship Institute in Woodstock, Vermont, and Saint Gaudens National Historic Site in New Hampshire, he led Lowell National Historical Park in Massachusetts from 2005-2012. His Fellowship year occurred in the middle of his tenure there.
Creasey will be counted on to implement a progressive management structure in Boston with a strong partnership orientation. Northeast Regional Director Mike Caldwell says “As the NPS enters its Centennial year in 2016, Michael’s skill sets will be critical in making Boston one of the premier urban national parks centers in the nation and a testament to how the NPS can work in collaboration with stakeholders at all levels to enhance one of America’s great cities.”
