Class of 2014 Final Session in Richmond


Our Richmond session started, appropriately enough, with a tour of the Executive Mansion and a question and answer session with Governor Terry McAuliffe.

Class of 2014 Visits The Valley


The Class of 2014 recently returned from our Valley Session from our base at the grand Hotel Roanoke in The Star City, and many thanks go out to the leadership of our session's co-chairs, Dr. Susan Short, Assoc. V.P. for Engagement, Va. Tech and LEAD VIRGINIA Class of 2013, and Rick Pevarski, President and CEO of Va. Utility Protection Services, Inc and LEAD VIRGINIA Class of 2011. Susan and Rick did a super job of providing our class with an overview of a region where two halves of a valley are working to become one. I think all in our class walked away impressed with the sense of urgency The Valley region seems to have around pursuing its future and harnessing it to improve the lives of its residents. From the fields of advanced medical research to the significant impact Virginia Tech has on both the economy and culture of the region, The Valley is a vital contributor to our state's success.
