McAulliffe names final cabinet member

Posted:

(WVVA) -- There will be another new face in the Virginia government next year, kind of.

Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe named former Virginia first lady, Anne Holton, as secretary of education.

McAuliffe made the announcement at a Capitol news conference on Friday.

Holton is the daughter of former Governor Linwood Holton, and the wife of former Governor Tim Kaine, who is now on the U.S. Senate.

She's a former Richmond juvenile and domestic court judge and a long-time child advocate.  Holton spent the past year directing a program helping young people aging out of foster care continue their education.
