Mill Mountain Zoo Board Hires New Executive Director

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - Mill Mountain Zoo's board has hired Lucy Cook as the Roanoke attraction's executive director.

Media outlets report that Board of Directors president Chriss Davies Ross announced Cook's hiring on Wednesday. Cook replaces Ray-Eric Correia, who stepped down last October.

Cook previously was a consultant in Buffalo, New York. Her agency, Cook Associates, specialized in nonprofit management and resource development sources. She initiated a $17 million capital campaign for public television and radio stations in Buffalo last year.

She served in the 1990s as the executive director of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy during its transition from the Buffalo Friends of Olmsted Parks.

Cook's two brothers live in Roanoke.
