Kendal Miller started as Switzerland County Tourism's new executive director Monday. Miller previously served as the public outreach coordinator for the Southeastern Indiana Recycling District.

"I'll be in charge of employees, trying to get what we call 'heads in beds,'" Miller said. "We want more people to come to the area. We want to promote the area and let people know they need to come to Switzerland County and see what a beautiful place we have."

Miller said there are several events coming up, including the county's bicentennial celebration in October and the Creative Spaces Rural Places Studio Tour starting April 20.
