RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense) – One of University of Richmond’s largest donors and the former head of a local grocery chain stepped down this month from the school’s board of trustees.

Bobby Ukrop resigned at a Dec. 7 meeting of the board, according to a source close to the family, who said Ukrop was upset by a perceived lack of transparency in the school’s decision to cut men’s soccer and track in favor of men’s lacrosse. Two other sources familiar with the UR board of trustees confirmed Ukrop’s departure.
