Arizona Theatre Company has elected Dr. Mary Jo Ghory and Dina Scalone-Romero to its board of trustees, and chosen Arlene Webster as an honorary trustee.
Ghory rejoins the board, having previously served as a trustee from 2001 through 2007.

Scalone-Romero is a New York native who worked with FEMA in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and led the distribution of the United Way’s 9/11 fund to victims in the borough of Brooklyn. She oversaw efforts to provide services and compensation to 5,000 residents impacted by the 9/11 attacks as a director for Safe Horizon. In 2004, Scalone-Romero became managing director of Stages of Learning, an organization dedicated to establishing theater as a measure of literacy in New York schools. She recently moved to Tucson and is currently the community relations manager for Cox Communications.
Webster works at Tucson Medical Center as a registered nurse in the ambulatory surgery center. She has been involved in the theater community for close to 40 years, and previously served on the board of Arizona Theatre Company for over twenty years. She currently also serves on the board of the Tucson Medical Center Foundation, and in the past has been involved in the Junior League of Tucson and worked with the Tucson Botanical Gardens on its annual Butterfly Gala.
