NASA Glenn gets new director
Posted: Sat, Aug 9, 2003, 10:47 AM ET (1447 GMT)
NASA announced Friday that the long-time director of its Glenn Research Center in Cleveland was moving to a new post at NASA Headquarters. NASA announced that Glenn center director Donald J. Campbell will become a special assistant to NASA Deputy Director Fred Gregory, focusing on nuclear and alternative power generation systems. Campbell, who has been center director since early 1994, had been criticized by some for his low-key leadership style, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported; the center's low ranking in performance surveys and its mixed record in creating jobs and economic activity in the region were also cited as causes of concern. Campbell will be replaced by Julian M. Earls, the center's deputy director who has been at the center since 1968. The change is the latest in a shakeup of leadership at NASA centers this year. New directors have been named for NASA's Kennedy, Langley, Marshall, and Stennis centers in the last several months.
