For the first time in 36 years, the Split Rock Lighthouse historical site on the north shore is getting a new boss. Hayes Scriven says he interviewed to be a tour guide at the site when he was fresh out of college in 2005…

“The program manager at the time had told me that they kind of filled out all their tour guide positions and he said I was overqualified for a tour guide position and he told me that someday I would be his boss, and that stuck with me.”

Scriven says he’s still shocked he got the job. He says he’s excited to get working with the staff to come up with new experiences for visitors at Split Rock.
