CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Newly elected Wyoming State Superintendent of Public Instruction Megen Degenfelder will be welcomed to the State Board of Career and Technical Education and Wyoming State Board of Education at its next virtual meeting at 9 a.m. Jan. 19.

The board will initially convene as the SBCTE and receive an update from Cheyenne city council member Michelle Aldrich, who is also the State Director of Career and Technical Education on statewide CTE activities.

Upon reconvening as the SBE, the board will receive presentations on literacy from Nikki Baldwin and Cynthia Brock both from the University of Wyoming.
