Susana Martínez Joins Foundation for Excellence in Education
Former NM Governor Susana Martínez has joined the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, a nonprofit focused on state education reform founded by former FL Governor Jeb Bush. Martínez was the first Latina Governor in the U.S., serving in the role from 2011 to 2018. Prior to that, she served as a prosecutor for 25 years along New Mexico’s southern border with Mexico, specializing in cases that involved the physical and sexual abuse of children. The University of Texas at El Paso graduate earned her law degree from the University of Oklahoma School of Law, where she was recently inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame. “I am humbled to be asked by Governor Bush to join ExcelinEd’s distinguished board, and I embrace the opportunity to further his vision for high-quality, student-centered education. Our children’s success must always be a national priority, and I look forward to working with my fellow board members to make this a reality,” Martínez said. More here.
