Sebelius to lead education group

October 12, 2005


— Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has been chosen to head the Education Commission of the States, the nonprofit group that advises governors, legislators and state education officials about education policy.

Sebelius, a Democrat, will serve as chairwoman-elect of the group until next summer, when she will become chairwoman for a two-year term. She will succeed Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee in the position.

Sebelius has made improvements to education a centerpiece of her tenure as governor.

She takes over as chairwoman-elect from New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, whose in-state commitments left him unable to complete his term.
