Jerri Marr is headed to Washington, D.C.

Marr, supervisor of the Pike and San Isabel National Forests, Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands, soon will become the national assistant director for Recreation, Business, Heritage and Volunteer Resources at U.S. Forest Service headquarters, according to a statement released about 5 p.m. Thursday.

Marr became well known in the Pikes Peak region during the 2012 Waldo Canyon fire, when she spoke daily at news briefings.

"I have enjoyed my time here on the PSICC and consider it an honor to have had the opportunity to serve as the Forest Supervisor," Marr said in the release.

The release did not say who would replace Marr in Colorado.

Marr said she didn't have time to talk about the promotion earlier Thursday, and a forest service spokeswoman did not reply to messages from The Gazette.
