Bye bye, have a nice retirement and all that. Heh. Now, for a bunch MORE changes at this school, or it will need to be forced to do so, ASAP. For more background on why top-to-bottom changes are needed at VMI, see this article and also this by VMI alumna Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy.

Statement of the President of the VMI Board of Visitors John William Boland, October 26, 2020

October 26, 2020

Today, our Superintendent tendered his resignation to the Board of Visitors. We accepted it with deep regret.

General Peay has served VMI as superintendent exceptionally well for more than 17 years. General Peay is a great American, patriot, and hero. He has profoundly changed our school for the better in all respects.

General Peay and his wife Pamela serve as a model of dedicated service to our nation and the Commonwealth.

We wish them well in their future endeavors.

The Board of Visitors must immediately turn its attention to the search for our new superintendent. In doing so, we will stay focused on our mission of preparing citizen-soldiers from all walks of life. I ask that our alumni remain focused on the positive mission and support the Institute and Board as we secure a future in which the Institute continues to contribute in unique and vital ways to our nation and state.

Mr. John W. Boland
President, VMI Board of Visitors
