Hatrick To Lead George C. Marshall International Center Board

© Leesburg Today - 07/31/2015

The board of directors of The George C. Marshall International Center has elected Edgar B. Hatrick III as its chairman.

Hatrick, who retired last year as Loudoun's superintendent of schools, has served as a GCMIC board member since 1995 and as chairman of its Education Committee since 2014. During his 20 years on the board, he worked closely with the late B. Powell Harrison and the founding members of the George C. Marshall Home Preservation Fund Inc.-which was renamed to The George C. Marshall International Center in 2007-to save Dodona Manor, the Leesburg home of Gen. George C. Marshall and his wife, from commercial development. In recent years, his work has focused on expanding the organization's student partnership exchange programs.

Hatrick is the eighth chairman in the center's 26-year history. He succeeds Gorham ""Rory"" Clark, managing partner and founder of The Clark Law Firm and The Legacy Elder Law Center in Leesburg.

""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,"" Marshall Center President and CEO Pat Daly in a prepared statement. ""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. Like Marshall, Dr. Hatrick is a strong leader whose character and integrity will serve our organization well.""

The center's mission is to preserve and advance Marshall's legacy by interpreting and propagating its relevance, advance Marshall's legacy of peace through international cooperation through its education programs and international exchanges, exhibits, community events, and manage the restoration and preservation of The Marshall House.
