On the first of January, Dr. Pamela Hammond will take over as interim President of Virginia State University. Dr. Keith Miller recently announced that he would resign at the end of the year.
Dr. Harmond, a former Provost at Hampton University, will be the first woman to serve as VSU President in the 133 year history of the school. She said she is aware of the challenge she faces. VSU’s enrollment is down and a $19 million shortfall is looming.
