Mary Baldwin University has appointed 14 community members this month to serve on its Advisory Board of Visitors, an organization comprised of alumni and friends of the university who help promote the mission of the institution, assist with special events, and help students through personal development and leadership training.
“It is an honor to be chosen for this responsibility, said Capt. Mark Black, superintendent of Fishburne Military School, one of the new board members. “I have chosen to serve in education after a 30-year career in the Navy and to live in the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro area. Accepting this role will enable me to hopefully advance both education and the area simultaneously.”
