The Board of Directors of the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple announced Michael B. Melcher has been selected as executive director.

Melcher’s experience in both arts administration and development will enable him to continue the mission of the Scranton Cultural Center and rejuvenate the national architectural treasure as a regional center for the arts, education and community activities appealing to all.

Melcher succeeds Attorney Joseph C. Peters who has accepted the position of senior executive deputy attorney general in charge of communications for Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane. Peters served as executive director since September 2011.
