Sara Martinez Tucker is NMSI CEO

I am always proud of our work at National Math and Science Initiative but even more proud and excited that we have just named Sara Martinez Tucker as our new CEO.  We met with Sara this week and her energy, drive and determination to increase college access for all students is exactly what we need.

We outlined what the perfect CEO would be and she fits the bill:

  • Corporate success - with AT&T
  • Non-profit success - with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF)
  • Education Experience - Under Secretary of Education
  • Fundraising success - on many boards now and raised over $200M with HSF
  • Outstanding leadership - she is the real deal
We have had incredible success over the last 9 months and this will put NMSI way over the top. 

And the students win!!!
