iPost adds Nicholas to its board

George Nicholas, senior pastor of Lincoln Memorial United Methodist Church, has joined Investigative Post’s board of directors.

Nicholas is a member of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo’s Racial Equity Roundtable, a convener of the Concerned Clergy Coalition of Western New York, and chair of the African American Health Disparities Task Force.

“I really believe in investigative journalism and we don’t have enough of it in our mainstream outlets,” he said. “Investigative Post fills a very important need.”

Nicholas previously served as the CEO of the Geneva B. Scruggs Community Health Care Center and a legislative aid to Assembly Member Arthur O. Eve.

He earned his undergraduate degree in sociology from Ohio State University, a master’s degree in public policy studies from the University at Buffalo, and a master’s in divinity from Colgate Rochester Divinity School.

“I expect George to play a very important role on our board,” said Jim Heaney, Investigative Post’s editor and executive director.
