Posted November 3, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— The North Carolina State Fair has a new permanent manager. Wesley Wyatt, who was acting manager during this year's fair, was officially appointed to the position Monday.

Wyatt first joined the fair staff in 1973. He worked his way up to assistant manager by 1992.

This past October, Wyatt took over the reins just two weeks prior to the fair when long-time manager Sam Rand passed away.
