Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts names Sue Nigra Interim Director

The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is pleased to announce that Sue Nigra has been named its interim director. Nigra is responsible for the oversight of all programs and activities at the center as well as marketing, membership recruitment and fund development.

“We are delighted to have Sue Nigra join us to help launch the creative arts center.  Her enthusiasm and experience are a perfect match, and who better to help us make the Paul Nigra Center a success than Sue Nigra?” said Wally Hart, executive director of The Lexington Foundation. 

Nigra, who will lead the center named in honor of her late father, brings to this role an extensive and broad experience in business, communications, public relations and the media. She most recently served as director of communications & outreach at the New York State Chapter of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), which represents more than 4,000 members. Prior to her time at ACOG, Nigra worked as director of communications at Bellevue Woman's Hospital in Niskayuna. Sue Nigra is perhaps best known for her early career in television journalism, where she worked for several years as a news anchor and reporter at both WTEN in Albany and WRGB in Niskayuna. 

Ms. Nigra graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Public Communications from the College of Saint Rose in Albany. She resides in Rensselaer County with her husband Joe and daughter Elizabeth.
