Missoula County Fairgrounds has a new director and his name is Todd Garrett. Garrett will replace Steve Earle who, earlier this year, announced his retirement plans.
Garrett and his family currently live in Whitefish. He's a University of Montana grad who earned a degree in Recreation Management. Garrett says many people mistakenly assume that's a discipline rooted in fun and games, when in fact, he says he learned critically important management and communication skills.
