RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 8, 2011) – Chris Huebner has been promoted to supervisor for administration of the Division of Law Enforcement with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission. His predecessor, Maj. David Stokes, retired Feb.1.

 As a captain, Huebner served as state coordinator for hunting safety and boating safety, beginning in 2005. A Clayton resident, he will direct and coordinate administrative functions for wildlife enforcement and oversee statutory duties.

“While I will miss the important task of providing safety education to hunters and boaters, I look forward to the new challenge of being administrative supervisor,” Maj. Huebner said.

Maj. Stokes began his career in wildlife enforcement in Cabarrus County in 1982 and worked his way up the ranks, culminating with the leadership role in the Raleigh headquarters.

“As a major, you realize pretty quickly how many people are vitally important to you, so you can get your job done,” Stokes said. “Fellow officers, folks in other divisions and with other agencies, and the general public, all play a part. I owe them my thanks.”
