Former Loudoun school superintendent elected Board of Directors chair for preservationist group

Dr. Edgar Hatrick, former Superintendent of Loudoun County Public Schools, has been elected by The George C. Marshall International Center, Inc. as chair of the organization's Board of Directors.

That makes him the eighth chair in the International Center's 26-year history, according to a release.

A member of preservationist group GCMIC's board since 1995, Hatrick worked with the founder of the organization's preservation fund to preserve The Marshall House in Leesburg in the face of pending commercial development. He

The mission of the GCMIC is to preserve and advance the enduring legacy of General George Catlett Marshall by interpreting and propagating its relevance to our time. The GCMIC preserves and advances Marshall’s legacy of peace through international cooperation through its education programs and international exchanges, exhibits, community events, and the ongoing restoration and preservation of The Marshall House in historic Leesburg, Virginia.

Hatrick also served as chairman of the Education Committee since 2014 and helped in the development and expansion of the GCMIC’s student partnership exchange programs.

Hatrick retired as Superintendent in 2014. A graduate of Loudoun County High School in 1963, he received his doctorate and Master’s in education from Virginia Tech and his bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Richmond.

After returning to his alma mater as an English teacher in January 1967, he served as the school’s principal and held administrative positions before acting as Superintendent of Loudoun schools for 22 years.

Hatrick has served as President of the Urban Superintendents Association of America and President of the American Association of School Administrators. He also served in professional and community offices and has been recognized for his work by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

“Dr. Hatrick’s 25 years of service to our organization make him uniquely qualified to lead our Board into the next phase of the GCMIC’s international development. His unparalleled knowledge and experience in education will enable us to draw on the resources needed to expand our current education programs and develop new programs to fulfill our mission," said Pat Daly, president and CEO of GCMIC, in a statement. "Like Marshall, Dr. Hatrick is a strong leader whose character and integrity will serve our organization well.”

Hatrick succeeds Gorham (Rory) Clark, managing partner and founder of The Clark Law Firm and The Legacy Elder Law Center in Leesburg.

“It is impossible to thank Mr. Clark adequately for his four years of leadership that gave the GCMIC financial stability. I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Rory Clark and his predecessor, Steve Price," Hatrick said in a statement. "Both of these chairmen led the GCMIC to increase its international presence and educational outreach.”
