RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia's governor-elect has named former first lady Anne Holton secretary of education.
Democrat Terry McAuliffe made the announcement at a Capitol news conference Friday.
Holton is the daughter of former Governor Linwood Holton and the wife of former Governor Tim Kaine, who is now a member of the U.S. Senate. She is a longtime child advocate and former Richmond Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court judge.
For the past year, Holton has directed a Virginia Community College System initiative that helps young people who are aging out of foster care continue their education.
McAuliffe has now named all 12 members of his Cabinet. He will be inaugurated Jan. 11.
