YAKIMA, Wash. -- Allied Arts of Yakima Valley has announced a new Executive Director.

Gail Wright will replace Jessica Moskwa who is stepping down.

Wright is the former director of development for Catholic Charities of Yakima. She worked for the organization for more than five years. She has also worked for the Capitol Theatre and Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital.

"I am thrilled to join the Allied Arts team," said Wright in a written statement. "With statewide budgets in jeopardy, funding for arts education in our schools is at an all-time low. Yet, its importance in our society is at an all-time high. Arts education provides creative and critical thinking that is essential to student achievement and success. I look forward driving our mission forward, and promoting the value of Allied Arts in our Valley and beyond."
 
Wright begins her new position April 4th.

Moskwa will be taking a new position as General Manager of Gilbert Cellars in Yakima.
