White, Board of Governors host legislative, community leaders

Interim President Gary White and the Marshall Board of Governors hosted a dinner for members of the Cabell-Wayne Delegation and other legislative and community leaders Monday evening in the John Marshall Dining Room to say thanks and to show appreciation for the legislature’s continued support of higher education.

Sen. Mike Hall, R-Putnam and chair of the finance committee, said Marshall officials handed the legislature eight bills they wanted passed and lawmakers passed all of them, including a bill that gives the medical schools relief from potential liability, according to the Huntington Herald-Dispatch.

“Our budget is less this year, but we ended the session in a better financial position than when the session began,” White was quoted as saying. “In addition to that, we got legislation that gave us flexibility to manage the resources we have, and those are significant accomplishments. We are very grateful for that.”
