Mark Battin

Mark Battin is the newest addition to the VCC Board.  He’s recently retired from a real estate career in the Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta region, and also brings to VCC a wealth of experience in sustainable farming and ranching. His views on the importance of education were originally formed in the jungles of Venezuela where he served in the Peace Corps and further defined on the multi-use ranches he developed in the mountains of California.  So remote the only way to maintain a foothold was through true diversification, these ranches were forward thinking in sustainable timber, agriculture and water use management.  Since retiring, Mark is focused on spending time on local waterways, kayaking and fly fishing, reinvigorating his lifelong commitment to sound water and land use.
