VMI extends superintendent's contract

By Washington Post editors

Virginia Military Institute's Board of Visitors has extended its superintendent's contract by two years.

Superintendent Gen. J. H. Binford Peay III's contract would have expired in 2013. Board President Thomas G. Slater Jr. says the agreement approved Saturday will extend Peay's contract through June 30, 2015.

The board cited increases in enrollment and the number of cadets accepting commissions in the Armed Forces. It also cited reaccreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Universities and growth in the number of math, science and engineering majors.

Peay has served as the Lexington school's superintendent since July 1, 2003.
