The Clinton House Museum in Fayetteville has hired Angie Albright as its new director, overseeing the operations and maintaining exhibits at the historic site, in addition to supervising its marketing and programs.
The museum is the first home of former President Bill Clinton and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. It served as the setting for their 1975 wedding, according to a press release.
“Angie brings a great deal of experience to this position and is eager to share the story of this home that bears so much significance to state and national history,” said Molly Rawn, executive director of the Fayetteville Advertising and Promotion Commission. “President Clinton and Hillary Clinton have a passion for public service and so much of that story begins here in Fayetteville.”
Albright served as director of development and outreach at the Arkansas Support Network in Springdale for one year before taking on the Clinton Museum position. Before that, she was director of programs for the Arkansas Nonprofit Alliance, executive director of the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter and was a professor of English at NorthWest Arkansas Community College.
She also serves on the boards of the nonprofits Jackson L. Graves Foundation and Feed Communities and is a member of the Community Leadership Council of the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of NWA.
