“I’m honored and excited to lead ACT through its transformation to support all students at every stage of their learning journey. Now more than ever, ACT has a responsibility to fight for fairness in education and to provide learning, navigation and assessment services that will help learners and educators alike make informed decisions on their paths to success. This is critical and urgent work, and I look forward to developing strong partnerships with educators and workforce professionals to create solutions that improve outcomes for all learners.”
