We have stewardship of our education

Eduardo Padron, president of Miami Dade College, has consistently drawn praise over the years as an education leader. So it’s no surprise that Obama appointed him his point man on one of our most important issues, education. As chair of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, he will direct a committee that will recommend steps and policy changes designed to increase Latino high school and college graduation rates.

Miranda Noland,

Miranda Noland is the Senior Photo Editor for Latina.com. She handles all the photo needs for the site and occasionally writes a thing or two. Growing up in a small town in Missouri, she collected (and hoarded) magazines and dreamed of working at one someday. She studied art and design at Drury University and moved to New York City after graduating. She loves being an aunt to her two nephews and has recently moved to be closer to them. She's a pop culture junkie who watches way too much television, and she still hoards magazines.
