In August, I announced that Greg Dolan, Associate Director of Public Policy, would be moving to Pittsburgh in December. We are most grateful to Greg for his excellent work on behalf of Catholic education at the federal level. He will be missed in the Secretariat of Catholic Education. We wish Greg and his family God's abundant blessings.
I am pleased to announce that Jennifer Daniels will be the new Associate Director for Public Policy in the Secretariat of Catholic Education. Jennifer has 15 years of experience in private school and government service. She has worked at both the federal and state level and brings practical experience in advocacy and Catholic schools. In addition to serving as a staffer in the US House of Representatives, Jennifer has served at the US State Department and the Archdiocese of Washington DC. While at the Archdiocese, she served in the Catholic school's office as Director of Government Relations managing the federal grants and programs in the six counties touching the Archdiocesan boundaries. She served the Archdiocese as policy expert for the District of Columbia Opportunity Scholarship Program, the only federal parental choice program and has been involved in parental choice initiatives with state and national organizations. Jennifer and her husband, Gavin, have three beautiful daughters, Emily, Ella and Everly. You will learn more about her passion and experience in the months to come.
