Executive committee names interim director of USS Kidd

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The USS Kidd is in the hands of a new interim director.

The USS Kidd's executive committee approved the hiring of Mark Tullos Jr. at a meeting Wednesday.

The committee chair said Tullos had been curator of several Louisiana museums and is currently between jobs.

He replaces former director Alex Juan, who announced her resignation on May 4.

The committee is still looking for a permanent director. Both the committee and Tullos have 15 days to notify each other if they find a permanent replacement or taking on Tullos finds another job.
