July 1, 2014

Longwood University

Colleen McCrink Margiloff ’97, a past president of the Longwood Alumni Association, has been elected rector of the Longwood University Board of Visitors. She succeeds Marianne Radcliff ’92, who completed her maximum 2-year term as rector on July 1, but will continue to serve as a member of the Board.

Fellow alumni Robert S. Wertz Jr. ’85, Shelby Walker M.S. ’93 and Stephen Mobley ’93 also were elected to leadership positions at the Board’s annual retreat last week: Wertz was named vice rector, Walker secretary and Mobley member at large of the Board’s executive committee.

Margiloff, of Rye, N.Y., was first appointed to the Board of Visitors in 2013. She and her husband, Will, established the Margiloff Scholarship Fund at Longwood and co-chaired the successful New Donor Challenge. She served on the university’s Alumni Association Board from 2007-13.

Wertz, of Leesburg, is commissioner of revenue for Loudoun County. He is a former member of the Longwood University Foundation Board and also served as president of the Alumni Association. Walker, of Charlotte Court House, has worked for more than 20 years as a librarian at Randolph-Henry High School. Mobley, of McLean, is a program manager for Thomson Reuters and has served on the Board of Visitors since 2009, having previously served on the Board of the Longwood University Foundation.

On June 2, Gov. Terry McAuliffe appointed three first-time members to the Longwood University Board of Visitors.

Eileen M. Anderson ’83, of Glen Allen, is the CFO of InfoPro Inc., an information technology company based in McLean, and has served on the Longwood University Foundation Board. Before joining InfoPro, Anderson was a vice president with VICOR Business Services.

Katherine Elam Busser, of Goochland, is the CEO of Virginia Children’s Hospital Alliance, a group seeking to establish a top-tier children’s hospital in the Richmond area. Previously, she was executive vice president and Central Virginia market president of Capital One. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia.

Lucia Anna "Pia" Trigiani, of Alexandria, is an attorney at MercerTrigiani, a real estate law firm, and has served as president of the Virginia Bar Association. She is a graduate of Saint Mary’s College and the University of Richmond.

Additionally, on June 20, the governor appointed David H. Hallock, Jr. of Richmond to fill the Board seat that had been held by the late Jane S. Maddux until her death June 7. Hallock is a senior advisor to U.S. Sen. Mark Warner.

A Blackstone native who lived in Charlottesville, Maddux enjoyed a long and varied career in business and public service. She had chaired Longwood’s 2012-13 presidential search committee, and was also the only non-doctor and non-lawyer appointed to the Virginia Board of Medicine.

"Jane had a remarkable love and affection for Longwood," said President W. Taylor Reveley IV, "and the Longwood community adored her in return. As Longwood celebrates its 175th year, we look forward to welcoming four new members with deep and varied experience who will contribute immensely to the institution in the coming years."
