Kaine Statement On Passing Of Virginia Tech President Emeritus Charles Steger

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement on the passing of Virginia Tech President Emeritus Dr. Charles W. Steger:

“I join the Virginia Tech family in mourning the loss of Charlie Steger. As Governor, I worked closely with him during one of the darkest moments in Virginia history, the tragic shooting on campus in 2007. And I also saw him undertake and complete signature projects like the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, which is accelerating medical education and research in Southwest Virginia while transforming the regional economy. He loved Virginia Tech and will be deeply missed.”
