Thomas R. Morris to be named Education Secretary

According to the AP:
Thomas R. Morris, president of Emory & Henry College, will be appointed secretary of education in the cabinet of Gov.-elect Tim Kaine, The Associated Press learned Thursday.

The appointment is one of the most important for Kaine, who aims to establish a program to train pre-kindergarten students to read, and it completes his cabinet for a four-year term that begins Jan. 14.

Morris will be introduced during a news conference at Richmond's Arthur Ashe Elementary School on Friday, according a senior state official who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of upstaging the announcement.

I suppose that puts the Houck for Education speculation to rest...
