Michael McGiffin, of Struthers, will start the new job Nov. 17. It pays $41,124 annually in salary.

“My biggest passion is trying to get the various [arts and entertainment] entities that are already so strong and have them work closely together,” said McGiffin, who has held the YSU job for the past three and a half years.
