Northern Virginia – Governor Bob McDonnell announced recent additions to various Virginia State Boards this past week and Succeed to Lead’s own Dr. Byron Cherry has been appointed to serve on Norfolk State University’s Board of Visitors.
According to the school’s website, “The Board of Visitors is an executive branch supervisory board responsible for University operations including requests for appropriations. As a public institution, Norfolk State University is accountable to Virginia’s taxpayers through institutional direction from its active, informed, and engaged Board of Visitors.”
“I am excited and honored to be appointed by Governor McDonnell to this position and believe it to be one way I can give back to an institution that has given me so much,” advised Cherry upon receiving notification of his appointment.
