Geary, Lopez, Taylor named to UMW board [The Free Lance-Star, Fredericksburg, Va.]
(Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, VA) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Oct. 20--Gov. Bob McDonnell appointed three University of Mary Washington alumni--Tabitha Geary, Kenneth J. Lopez and Lisa D. Taylor--to the college's board of visitors Friday.
They succeed Daniel K. Steen, Mary J. Berry and the Honorable Pamela J. White, whose terms have ended, according UMW spokeswoman Marty Morrison.
Geary, of Richmond, is a 1992 UMW graduate and the vice president of Sapient, an integrated marketing and technology services firm in Washington, D.C.
Lopez is also a 1992 UMW graduate. From Alexandria, he is the CEO and founder of A2L Consulting, which provides jury consulting, litigation graphics and courtroom support to the nation's largest law firms.
Lopez serves on the advisory board of UMW's College of Business. He was UMW's Junior Executive-in-Residence in 2008 and is a frequent guest speaker for classes and student organizations, according to UMW.
Taylor, of Chantilly, is the director of contracts for Northrop Grumman Corp., a global provider of solutions for military, intelligence, civilian, state and local, and commercial customers.
Taylor has also operated a Jazzercise franchise since 2006, where she works as an instructor.
UMW's BOV is composed of 12 members appointed by the governor.
The BOV is responsible for appointing the president, determining institutional policies, setting faculty salaries, fixing tuition and fees, awarding degrees, approving changes to the curriculum and the Honor System and overseeing the Internal Audit office.
At least six members of the board must be alumni of UMW, and no more than three may be nonresidents of Virginia.
Each member serves a term of four years and may be eligible for reappointment to one successive term.
White, departing rector of the UMW board of visitors, expressed gratitude in a release for the opportunity to serve her alma mater.
"I am particularly proud to have played a role in naming and supporting Rick Hurley as UMW's ninth president," White wrote.
White also applauded the contributions of Berry and Steen, whom she succeeded as rector.
