CUMBERLAND ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — The National Park Service says its acting superintendent on Cumberland Island will keep the job on a permanent basis.

Gary Ingram has been filling in as the Park Service's top official for the Cumberland Island National Seashore since January, following the retirement of former superintendent Fred Boyles. A Park Service spokesman in Atlanta, Bill Reynolds, said Thursday that Ingram has been hired to remain in charge of the federal protected island off Georgia's coast.

Before coming to Cumberland Island, Ingram served since 2007 as superintendent of the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site in Plains. Before that, he worked in Washington and at Yosemite National Park in California.

Cumberland Island is home to more than 9,800 acres of protected wilderness and unspoiled beaches. It attracts about 43,500 visitors a year.
