BREAKING NEWS: Retiring state senator to head NCI

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

By PAUL COLLINS - Bulletin Staff Writer

The board of directors of New College Institute today unanimously named retiring Virginia Sen. William C. Wampler Jr. executive director of NCI, effective Jan. 11.

Wampler, 52, R-Bristol, did not seek re-election. "I'm hanging up my political spurs on Wednesday (Jan. 11)," he said.

As executive director, he foresees focusing on linking higher education and job creation, he said.

Rob Spilman, NCI board president, praised Wampler's accomplishments, including his involvement with higher education and economic development.

"I think Sen. Wampler is going to re-energize this area in a lot of ways. He will not only take NCI to the next level; he will further the interests of the entire community. NCI is the game-changer for this region, and William's vision, experience and energy (are) going to win the game for us," Spilman added.
