University of Mary Washington President Richard V. Hurley was honored as a Local Legend by the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce during its second annual event on Thursday, July 30.
“President Hurley is recognized as an active community leader in the Fredericksburg area and is strongly committed to economic development,” according to a Chamber news release. “He has served as the chair of the board of directors of the Rappahannock United Way, a director of the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the board of the Fredericksburg Regional Alliance.”
Hurley was among four local businessmen to be recognized, all of whom will be retiring within the year.
“This is a way to recognize the business career and community contributions of the honorees,” said Whitney Watts, the Chamber’s director of membership. “They are our local legends.”
