I have assembled some of the best minds in Wyoming education and government to help me chart the course for my administration and beyond. My Cabinet for Education Outreach brings expertise in special education, school facilities, curriculum, education management, executive and legislative government function, and innovation. The Cabinet will advise me and my staff and reach out directly to stakeholder groups. I said I would hit the ground running on day one and that is what we are doing.
