Three members were appointed to Reston Community Center’s Board of Governors this week.

As requested by Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn, incumbents Paul William Penniman and Vicky Wingert and newcomer Paul Berry were formally appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors at its meeting yesterday (Tuesday).

The board members were selected by residents of the RCC tax district through this year’s preference poll, which took place between Sept. 8 and 29. Their terms begin on Nov. 6.

Berry — who campaigned for the Virginia House of Delegates’ District 7 seat — works as a teacher and served on former governor Ralph Northam’s Virginia Latino Advisory Board.

Pennimen, who has sat on the board since 2006, is an active member of Reston Planning and Zoning Committee and the Sierra Club. Wingert has served on the board since 2011 and is the founder of Friends of Reston, the nonprofit that supports Reston Association.
