HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - An interim manager has been named for the Kansas State Fair about two months before the 2015 fair gets underway.

The Hutchison News reports (http://bit.ly/1TFtkH0 ) the Kansas State Fair board voted Wednesday to name Assistant Fair Manager Lori Hart as interim manager.

The fair, scheduled for September, drew about 350,000 people to the 10-day event last year.

Fair manager Denny Stoecklein announced last month he’s taking a job as director of marketing and communications at Hutchinson Com-munity College. He begins work there Monday.

Fair Board President Harmon Bliss says a five-member committee of the board will continue will search for Stoecklein’s permanent replacement.
