As the 2003-04 academic year gets under way, George Mason’s Board of Visitors (BOV) will have three new faces. They are William Page Johnson II, of Fairfax, a 1988 George Mason graduate of the School of Management and commissioner of the Revenue for the City of Fairfax; Byron Marchant of Arlington, executive vice president, general counsel, and chief administrative officer of Black Entertainment Television Inc.; and J. Knox Singleton of Oakton, president and CEO of Inova Health System.

The three new appointees were announced last week by Gov. Mark Warner. Warner also announced the reappointment of Sidney Dewberry of Arlington, former chairman of the George Mason University Foundation, recipient of the 1997 George Mason Medal, and chairman of the Dewberry Companies. All appointees will serve four-year terms.

“The outstanding men and women I am appointing today have demonstrated a commitment to work for the best interests of higher education in the commonwealth,” Warner said. “Our public colleges and universities continue to face challenges in a tight budget climate, and these individuals share my commitment to ensuring a system of quality higher education is available to all Virginians.”

Johnson, Marchant, and Singleton replace Scott McGeary, Jack Herrity, and Manuel Johnson, whose terms expired June 30.
