Diana L. White has been named the Vice President of Business and Administration at Davis & Elkins College. She will replace Bob Hardman who is retiring after serving more than six years in this role.

A native of Ansted, West Virginia, in Fayette County, White holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Business Administration from Mountain State University and an MBA with a Specialty in Health Care Administration from the University of Phoenix. White has over thirty years of accounting and operations experience primarily in the health care industry. For the past thirteen years, she served as the Executive Director of Crestview Manor Healthcare Center.

As the Vice President of Business and Administration at D&E, White will oversee capital projects, manage revenue and expenses, develop and implement yearly budgets, and guide related policies and procedures. In addition, she will advise multiple departments on campus including the Business Office, Information Services, Facilities, and the Spirit Store.

“Diana White is a welcome addition to Davis & Elkins College,” said D&E President Chris A. Wood. “Her distinguished career has prepared her well for the multi-faceted role she assumes at the College. In her first few days on the job, she has demonstrated her ability to apply her skills in a new setting and has ingratiated herself with employees of the Business Office and many across the College. With extreme gratitude to Bob Hardman for an excellent job in this role over several years, Diana is prepared to pick up his mantle and keep the business operations of the College on track.”

“I am very excited for the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of faculty, staff, and students,” White said. “It is an exciting time to be a part of D&E with the addition of the new residence hall, upcoming renovations on existing residence halls, renovations to Graceland, and growth in academic programs.”

White and her husband, Greg, reside in Ellamore, WV, and have four children.
