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.
