VMI Picks Interim Superintendent Amid Leadership Shakeup

The Virginia Military Institute has selected a retired U.S. Army major general to serve as its interim superintendent.

The school announced in a news release Friday that Cedric Wins will step in to lead the military college until a permanent superintendent is chosen.

The move comes after VMI’s former superintendent resigned last month under pressure from the governor’s office following the publication of a Washington Post article that described Black students facing persistent racism.

Earlier this month, the General Assembly approved adding $1 million to the state budget to pay for an independent investigation into the allegations.

The Associated Press is one of the largest and most trusted sources of independent newsgathering, supplying a steady stream of news to its members, international subscribers and commercial customers. AP is neither privately owned nor government-funded; instead, it's a not-for-profit news cooperative owned by its American newspaper and broadcast members.
