GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) The executive director of the Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau has resigned.

Board chairman Amro Samy says the board will begin a search for a new director immediately. Samy says the board hopes to have a new executive director in about a month.

Events Director Larry Johnson will act as interim director until a new director is hired.

Schoonover led the CVB since 2008.
