Vice Rector of the College of William and Mary Henry Wolf ’64 J.D. ’68 was unanimously elected to the position of rector Friday.

Wolf will replace Michael Powell ’85, who is stepping down after two consecutive terms at the head of the BOV.

The rector serves as the BOV’s chairman.

The position of the vice rector will be filled by John Gerdelman ’75, who was appointed to the BOV in 2003.

Secretary of the Board Suzann Matthews ’71, who is also stepping down, will be replaced by Janet Brashear ’82 who was appointed to the BOV in 2004.

Wolf, a graduate of the College and the Marshall-Wythe School of Law, will succeed Powell on July 1.

He will be the first Jewish rector at the College.

“This is a truly a talented and committed Board and I am humbled to be elected as its next Rector,” Wolf said in a College press release. “Serving as Vice Rector has been an inspiring experience and I hope to continue the great work made possible by Michael Powell’s leadership and look forward to working even closer with President Reveley. I am truly honored.”
