GREENSBURG, PA (December 23, 2018) — The Board of Directors of Westmoreland Cultural Trust is pleased to announce the appointment of Nancy P. Anderson as interim Chief Executive Officer of the Westmoreland Cultural Trust.   Anderson will serve in the role as the board launches its search for a permanent President and CEO.

“There’s great enthusiasm and delight in welcoming Nancy in this position, and she has the support of the entire board.  She’s very familiar with the Trust and has been a long-time supporter of our mission and The Palace Theatre,” said T.
