Message from Cheryl Miller

Hello Everyone:

While I know the news is already being shared across campus, I want to officially inform you of my decision to retire effective 2/1/16.  My plan is to use some annual leave between now and then, but to continue working up through the holiday break (or earlier, depending on how things work out) and then not return.

I want to thank you for the support you have shown me during the past eight (8) years.  I truly value the relationships we have forged and the work that we have accomplished together!   I am especially grateful to the employees in Financial Services, Campus Police, Facility Planning, FMS and IET for their hard work and support.

While a difficult decision to reach, I am excited for the future.  After 32 years of service with the Commonwealth of Virginia, I am looking forward to spending time with my family, visiting as many beaches as possible, and enjoying time with my beautiful grandchildren.

During the time I have remaining, I am committed to a smooth transition for the college.  Please let me know how I can best make that happen for each of your areas.

Thanks for all you do to support the college. I wish each of you the very best!
