RICHMOND—Phillip Bradshaw, the chief financial officer for Isle of Wight County Public Schools, has been appointed to the Virginia Board of Forestry, Gov. Bob McDonnell announced Friday.

“I’m just excited to serve on it,” Bradshaw said. “I look forward to serving on that and working with the other members.”

The Board of Forestry advises the governor and the Department of Forestry on the state of forest resources within Virginia and the management of forest resources, according to its website.

The board also recommends plans for improving the state system of forest protection, management and replacement, and is required to prepare an annual report on the progress and conditions of state forest work.

Board members meet at least three times a year. Membership is composed of one person from each congressional district. Members are appointed by the governor for four-year terms.

Bradshaw lives in Carrsville and served 17 years on the Isle of Wight County Board of Supervisors before resigning in November when he accepted his current position with the school system.
