Governor Lujan Grisham Announces PED Leadership!

Today, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced her appointee to lead the Public Education Department as well as key supplemental department leaders. A very dynamic lineup of experts and leaders have been chosen to lead the Governor's education agenda which includes strong support for community school initiatives. Karen Trujillo, the secretary-designee and the deputy secretaries have all been educated in New Mexico schools and each has worked extensively in our state education system. The designees include a former Communities In Schools of New Mexico Board Member, Gwen Perea Warniment. Pictured from left to right are Pedro Noguera, Special Advisor to the Secretary; Tim Hand; Karen Trujillo, Secretary-Designee; Katarina "Kata" Sandoval; Governor Lujan Grisham; Gwen Perea Warniment; Lieutenant Governor, Howie Morales; Kara Bobroff and Daniel Manzano.

The CIS Team looks forward to working with this stellar "all-star" team to advance education opportunities for all New Mexico children.
