New Mexico gets first Early Childhood Education secretary

New Mexico

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico now has its first-ever state secretary of Early Childhood Education and Care Department.

The New Mexico Senate on Friday unanimously confirmed education official Elizabeth Groginsky to the job, leading a new government department created last year.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham appointed Groginsky to the cabinet post in November.

The 53-year-old Groginsky is a former Washington, D.C.-based education official who has been working full time on early child care since 2003, when she was a county administrator of the Head Start early childhood program in Colorado.
