Gary White Resigns From State Board Of Education

September 25, 2000

Gary G. White of Logan resigned his seat on the West Virginia Board of Education last week citing increased work responsibilities that keep him from devoting the amount of time necessary to be an effective member of the State Board. White has served on the State Board of Education since 1994.  

In a letter to Gov. Cecil Underwood, White indicated that "my duties and responsibilities in our company have grown considerably over the past few months and I find it necessary to reduce the amount of time spent away from my official responsibilities here."  

White is president and chief executive officer of International Industries, Inc., a diversified natural resources company based in Gilbert.  

"Gary White brought tremendous business knowledge and astute leadership to the State Board," said State Superintendent Dr. David Stewart. "His wisdom, insight, and professionalism will be greatly missed."  

White said he had been honored to serve the school system of West Virginia and was proud to have been a part of the education reform movement. He will continue to serve until the Governor appoints a replacement.
