The executive director of New River Valley Community Services, one of several mental health agencies linked to the case of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho, has resigned, agency officials confirmed Monday.
Les Saltzberg, a mental health services veteran who had been director for a year, resigned following a board meeting Thursday. His resignation, which was effective immediately, came as the board was to consider renewing his one-year contract.
It also came amid widespread media coverage of NRV Community Services' role in the treatment of Cho, who in April shot 32 people on Virginia Tech's campus before killing himself.
Reached at home, Saltzberg declined to say anything about his departure or what he intended to do next. Community services board members said the resignation was unrelated to Cho but would not say more.
