Gov. Bob McDonnell has named three people with ties to the New River Valley to his new school and campus safety task force.
* Del. Joseph Yost, R-Blacksburg
* Gene Deisinger, deputy chief and director of threat management at Virginia Tech
* Allen Hill, the father of Rachael Elizabeth Hill, who was killed in the 2007 Virginia Tech mass shooting.
