Governor Tom Corbett has nominated William Harner to be Pennsylvania's next education secretary.
The posting of Harner's nomination, announced Thursday sets the stage for a Senate confirmation hearing and vote.
The Republican governor had announced last week that Harner, superintendent of Cumberland Valley School District in Mechanicsburg, is his choice to succeed Ron Tomalis as secretary. Tomalis is moving into an advisory role in the administration.
Harner is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He is slated to take over as acting secretary on June 3rd. The Department of Education oversees more than $14-billion in state and federal money for Pennsylvania's public schools, charter schools, libraries, universities and colleges.
