Facility in Honors Village Named for Mastraccos
On May 17, 2017, a residential facility in Honors Village was dedicated as Mastracco Hall in honor of Virginia Wesleyan Trustee Vince Mastracco and his wife, Suzanne. Vince has been a member of the Virginia Wesleyan Board of Trustees for more than 20 years, and is now serving as chair of the Advancement Committee. He has been extraordinarily helpful in providing counsel for Virginia Wesleyan, most recently on the Campus Master Plan. His community service also includes active participation on the Greater Norfolk Corporation and the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. According to President Miller, “Vince has been working, quietly but diligently, to make it possible for us to move forward on the residential development planned for the area across Wesleyan Drive—to be known as Oxford Village—and he has been enormously helpful to our senior administrative team, and me personally, in matters of fundraising, community engagement, marketing and rebranding, and other areas that have enhanced our visibility, leadership, and effectiveness as Coastal Virginia’s premier institution of the liberal arts and sciences.” Suzanne Mastracco is an active supporter of the arts throughout the region. She serves on the board of trustees of the Chrysler Museum of Art, and she is actively engaged in the Virginia Arts Festival, the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, the Virginia Commission for the Arts, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The Mastraccos have been recognized for their many contributions--not only to the College-- but also to the region. In 2007, Volunteer Hampton Roads honored them with its Lenora Mathews Lifetime Achievement Award as exemplary volunteers and caring citizens, and in 2012, they received the Darden Award for Regional Leadership.
