Gary T, McCollum, a 200+ member and former Scholars Breakfast honorary chair, has resigned from the Norfolk State University Board of Visitors.

In announcing his exit, the board's rector revealed that he and his wife, Cookie, are expecting a girl in September. "We're excited and overjoyed," said McCollum, who has an adult daughter from his first marriage.

McCollum told the board that his wife wanted him to reduce his non-job responsibilities. He is on several boards and is involved in myriad community-betterment efforts. 

Senior vice president and general manager of Cox Communications' Virginia System, McCollum was appointed to the NSU board in 2007 by then Governor Timothy Kaine. He said that Norfolk State is moving ahead, thanks to NSU President Tony Atwater and a strong board.
