Institute leadership continues to communicate important information for cadets, their families, faculty & staff, and the VMI community at-large:
Following a professional, thoughtful, and thorough search, the VMI Board of Visitors has voted to appoint Maj. Gen. Cedric T. Wins '85 to the position of superintendent. The Institute looks forward to the continued leadership of MG Wins, who has served as interim superintendent since November 2020.
In its first two-day, in-person meeting since the pandemic, the Virginia Military Institute Board of Visitors took action on a number of important items including setting tuition and fees for the 2021-22 academic year, electing new officers, and contextualizing a number of features on post.
Col. Bill Wanovich will retire July 1 after seven years as commandant of cadets. “I’ve really enjoyed working with the cadets,” said Wanovich. “I’ve enjoyed the professionalism I see in them. I feel like I’ve seen continued improvement and continued progress in cadets over the years, which is good.”
The Superintendent regrets to inform the VMI community of the death of Capt. Blair Turner. He passed away on 26 April 2021 at home. He was 73. Blair committed more than 38 years to the Institute until his retirement in November 2020.
