Three Appointed To LU Board Of Visitors

RICHMOND — Gov. Terry McAuliffe recently announced appointments to Longwood University’s Board of Visitors.

Michael A. Evans, of Hanover, a retired human services administrator, is a new appointee. Reappointed were David Hallock Jr., of Richmond, chief of staff to U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, and Marianne M. Radcliff, of Richmond, vice president of Kemper Consulting.

“The leaders of Virginia’s higher education system will set the course for institutions that are essential to our commonwealth’s economic success,” McAuliffe said in a press release, announcing appointments to the boards of multiple state institutions. “I speak personally with every person I appoint to serve our college and university system, and I ask each one to use his or her knowledge and experience to foster innovation at their institutions, to keep the burden of tuition as low as possible and to emphasize teaching skill sets in the high demand fields of the future. Virginia has one of the best higher-education systems on the globe and I am confident that these leaders will keep their schools moving forward as we work together to build a new Virginia economy.”
