After less than six months on the job, Glenwood Resource Center Superintendent R. Scot Booth abruptly resigned on Thursday.
Booth was brought in last October to oversee the state-operated residential care and treatment facility for people with mental and developmental disabilities. His resignation was effective the end of the day Thursday.
A statement released by the Iowa Department of Human Services on Friday did not give a reason for Booth's resignation.
Assistant superintendent Kelly Brodie has been named interim superintendent.
