CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The landscape of the West Virginia University Board of Governors could change soon, with some members' terms expiring in June.
Board members Diane Lewis, William Wilmoth and Dr. Thomas Clark's terms end June 30. Clark, who is in his second term, is not eligible for reappointment, while Lewis and Wilmoth are eligible, according to WVU spokesman John Bolt.
Most board members are appointed by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. He does not appoint two faculty representatives, a classified staff member, a student representative or a board member from the Board of Visitors at the WVU Institute of Technology.
Lewis is the president and CEO of Morgantown-based company Action Facilities Management Inc. and recently was named the 2013 West Virginia Small Business Person of the Year.
Wilmoth is an attorney for Steptoe & Johnson in Wheeling and a former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of West Virginia.
Neither Wilmoth nor Lewis returned calls last week about whether they would seek reappointment or not.
Clark is the retired vice president of corporate medical affairs at Mylan Pharmaceuticals in Bruceton Mills.
Neither Clark nor WVU officials would comment earlier this month about allegations that Clark used cocaine. He was evicted from a condominium in Florida last year over allegations that he used the illegal drug, according to court records. No known criminal charges were filed against Clark, according to a search of Palm Beach County Court records.
Tomblin representatives did not provide any indication of the governor's plans for representatives on the WVU board.
Lesley Cottrell, one of the board's faculty representatives, also completes her two-year term on June 30. Cottrell is the vice chairwoman of pediatric research at WVU and will be replaced by Lisa DiBartolomeo, current chairwoman-elect of the school's Faculty Senate.
