School of Mines President Heather Wilson To Be Nominated As Air Force Secretary

South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T) President Heather Wilson will likely be nominated as Secretary of the Air Force, according to the Black Hills Pioneer.  Wilson would be the first Air Force Academy graduate to hold the position, if confirmed by the Senate. Wilson also served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1998 until 2009.

Wilson will continue on as president of SDSM&T until she is confirmed by the U.S. Senate. If confirmed, Wilson will immediately leave her post at the university and an interim president will be appointed. The South Dakota Board of Regents is responsible for conducting a search for a new president.
