Bonnie Cordon Is the New President of Southern Virginia University

Bonnie H. Cordon was named the tenth president of Southern Virginia University in Buena Vista, Virginia.

Southern Virginia University enrolls just over 1,000 students, according to the latest data available from the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up 47 percent of the student body.

President Cordon recently completed seven years as a General Officer of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the last five as president of the worldwide Young Women organization. In this role, Cordon led the Young Women organization through a significant season of growth and change represented, in part, by the implementation of a new, worldwide Children and Youth program and the significant expansion of For the Strength of Youth conferences attended by hundreds of thousands of youth and young adults each year.

“I am thrilled with the honor and privilege to serve as the tenth president at Southern Virginia University. With its rich history of outstanding leadership, I am committed to building upon this university’s legacy with faith in Christ and wholehearted enthusiasm for the future,” said President Cordon. “Together, we pledge to pursue an era of inspired growth, academic excellence, and innovation as we strive to fulfill our extraordinary potentials and divine purposes.”

Cordon received a bachelor’s degree in education from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
