New College Gets A Board

The board of directors for the New College Institute in Martinsville has been named by Governor Tim Kaine, before he visits the area today to sign the bill that gives life to the institution.

Named to the board were;
  • Elizabeth Haskell, Vice President of the Martinsville Bulletin and former City Councilwoman
  • George Lyle, Attorney for Henry County, the Henry County School Board, and Social Services.
  • Kimble Reynolds, Lawyer and vice-mayor of Martinsville.
  • Joe Roach, CEO of Memorial Hospital of Martinsville and Henry County.
  • Rob Spilman, CEO of Bassett Furniture Industries.
  • Amanda Redd, Owner of Sammy Redd and Associates.
  • Dr. Eugene Trani, president of Virginia Commonwealth University.
Perhaps the first item on the agenda could be finding an alternative to the unwieldy and unattractive name, New College Institute in Martinsville.
