Former Va. First Lady Anne Holton Gets New Job

November 13, 2012

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia first lady Anne Holton says she's looking forward to her new job with an education initiative.

Holton will become program director of Great Expectations in January. The Virginia Community College System initiative helps young people who are aging out of foster care continue their education.

Holton tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that she was looking for an opportunity to work directly with at-risk youths when she learned about the job.

The program operates at 16 of the state's 23 community colleges. Holton says part of her job will be to expand the program to other campuses.
