Rector White said the Board was pleased with the President’s performance and asked Sheriff Morgan to call for the vote that was discussed in closed session. Sheriff Morgan said that “the Board of Visitors hereby gives Paul Trible a unanimous and unqualified vote of confidence and appreciation for his accomplishments and service during the past year.” Mr. Millar seconded the recommendation and the Board was unanimous in response.

Rector White told President Trible that the Board requested the addition of one annual goal which is to devise a succession plan for key staff. President Trible thanked the Board for their support and encouragement.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
