The SVHEC Board of Trustees welcomed three new board members, and elected two new officers at its quarterly meeting Sept. 4. New members included Dr. Bruce Scism, Loretta Harris, and David Willette.

Willette of Chatham, is the manager of the HP Data Center in Clarksville. He served with distinction in the US Army from 1996-2000, earning numerous honors including the Army Commendation and Meritorious Service Medals. After leaving military service, Willette and his family moved back to Southern Virginia where he enrolled in Danville Community College’s Information Technology Networking program. Prior to his current position with HP, he was an adjunct instructor in DCC’s business & engineering division.

“I am so very pleased to welcome our newest trustees to the SVHEC board. Each brings unique and substantial experiences to the table. I look forward to the impact I know they will have in guiding the future course of the SVHEC,” said Dr. Betty H. Adams, executive director of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center.

During the meeting, elections were also held to fill the open seats of vice-chairman and secretary. Upon nomination and unanimous approval, Halifax County businessman John Cannon was elected as board vice-chairman, and Nancy Talley, retired educator from Clarksville, was elected as secretary.
