Kentucky Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman has been re-nominated as a South Region at Large Member of the National Lieutenant Governors Association at the organization’s annual meeting.
According to a news release, Lt. Gov. Coleman was selected by a bipartisan vote of lieutenant governors across the country and her service begins immediately. She will serve through August 2023. The NLGA was formed in 1962 as the professional and educational association for the elected officials who are first in line of succession to governors.
Coleman says, “As part of leadership, I have a role in directing the organization’s support of STEM education and I am happy to say we will soon announce we’ve brought a Lieutenant Governors’ STEM Scholarship for Schools to a school in Kentucky. The most recent meeting also covered information on 988 implementation, crisis management, innovative housing finance policy, workforce and the economy.”
