RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Virginia Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe has chosen Anne Holton to be Virginia's next
Secretary of Education.

Holton is listed as Director of Great Expectations, a program that "helps Virginia’s foster youth complete high school, gain access to a community college education and transition successfully from the foster care system to living independently," according to its website.

Holton is the daughter of former Virginia Governor Linwood Holton and wife of former Virginia Governor and current U.S. Senator Tim Kaine.

Holton served as a juvenile and domestic relations district court judge before her husband was elected governor.
