NORFOLK, Va. (July 13, 2015) — Nancy Wilcox, senior leader and national sales trainer for NYR Organic, is the new president of the Board of Directors of the nonprofit St. Mary’s Home, which cares for children and young adults with severe disabilities.

As Board president, Wilcox succeeds Thomas W. Godfrey Jr., president of Colonna’s Shipyard, who remains on St. Mary’s Board as immediate past president. Wilcox, who previously was vice president of St. Mary’s Board of Directors, also is a longtime member of the Auxiliary Board of St. Mary’s Home, a group of dedicated women who strive to fill needs the Home otherwise cannot meet.

St. Mary’s Home Has New Board President

There’s a new man at the helm of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children. He’s Richard N. Knapp, chief operating officer for Virginia International Terminals, Inc.

The Board selected Knapp last night during its annual meeting, which featured remarks by the Honorable  Ralph S. Northam, senator from Virginia’s 6th District and a pediatric neurologist.

“The staff of this organization are extraordinary at what they do,” Knapp said during the meeting. “I know the children are nourished by your involvement and caring.”

Knapp succeeds Michael P. Cotter, who served as president for two years and will remain on the Board. Cotter is a partner with the law firm of Vandeventer Black in Norfolk.

Trustees to Hold Annual Meeting

The Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children will hold an Annual Meeting & Dinner at the Home on March 26. The Honorable Ralph S. Northam, a doctor and senator from Virginia’s 6th District, is scheduled to speak.

The event is made possible through the generosity of two companies with close ties to SMHDC: Paul Finch & Associates, P.C. and S.B. Ballard Construction Company.

Architects PF&A designed SMHDC’s state-of-the-art, 88,000-square-foot facility, which opened in February 2005. S.B. Ballard was the general contractor for the project.
