Changing of the guard at Rice Rivers Center
December 17, 2014
The VCU Rice Rivers Center would like to thank retiring Board of Trustees Chairman Daniel Fort for all his years of service to the Center and the University, including a number of years as Chairman. We are delighted that Dr. Fort will continue to serve on the Rice Rivers Center Board and extend many, many thanks for his passionate devotion and support for the research, scholarship, outreach and stewardship practiced at and through Rice.
The gavel has been passed to new chairman, Mr. Brooks Smith. As secretary/treasurer of VIRGINIAforever and a partner at Troutman Sanders, he brings a depth of experience and enthusiasm that will enable him to lead the organization through the next exciting phase that will include construction of a state-of-the-art research building.
The VCU Rice Rivers Center extends hearty thanks to both of these gentlemen for their faithful service.
