Richmond lawyer elected vice rector at U.Va.
- September 16, 2012
George Keith Martin of Richmond has been elected vice rector of the University of Virginia Board of Visitors.
Martin will fill the position vacated by Mark J. Kington who resigned in June.
Martin, managing partner of the Richmond office of the law firm McGuireWoods, is a 1975 graduate of U.Va.
He is the university’s first African-American vice rector.
Gov. Bob McDonnell appointed him to the board in July 2011.
His election as vice rector means Martin will succeed Helen Dragas as rector of the university when her term expires next June.
