Why I VMI: Richard Hines ’66
Richard Hines ’66 is a fourth generation alumnus of VMI. When he was considering colleges, his father told him, “If you want to get a good education, go to VMI.” In this video, Hines discusses the traits of character and integrity instilled in him during his time as a cadet, as well as the importance of giving to the VMI Foundation Fund to support the Corps of the present and of the future.
This interview is part of a larger video series called, “Why I VMI.” The videos feature alumni, students and faculty discussing their VMI story, and why they give their time, talent and treasure back to the Institute.
