Date Posted: 2/01/2013 | Author: Edwin Ortiz
Gov. Rick Perry has reappointed Barbara Cargill as chair of the State Board of Education for a two-year term. Chairwoman Cargill is a former educator and has served as chair since her appointment in July 2011. Cargill received a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University and a master’s degree in science education from the Texas Woman’s University. Although the governor has made this appointment, it is not yet set in stone. Cargill will need to be confirmed by the Texas Senate before taking the reins once again at the State Board of Education.
