FRANKFORT, KY (Fri 29 Sep 2017) - Senator Max Wise (R-Campbellsville) was recently selected by his colleagues as the new co-chair of the Education Assessment and Accountability Review Subcommittee (EAARS).

Wise's new co-chairmanship comes after former co-chairman, Senator Mike Wilson (R-Bowling Green), was elected to Kentucky State Senate Leadership last week as the new Senate Majority Caucus Whip.
"I am excited about this new co-chairmanship and know Senator Wilson left some big shoes for me to fill," Senator Wise said. "I look forward to building off what I have learned as a member of this committee and continuing a solid working relationship with the Education Cabinet and the Kentucky Board of Education in this new role."

The Education Assessment and Accountability Review Subcommittee is tasked with reviewing administrative regulations and advising the Kentucky Board of Education with regards to the implementation of the state system of assessment and accountability and providing oversight and direction to the Office of Education Accountability.

"As a valued sitting member of the EAARS, Senator Wise is highly qualified to co-chair this committee given his background as a professor and his intellect as a former FBI analyst," Senator Wilson said. "I know he will do an exceptional job serving in this new capacity."

Senator Wilson said he plans to remain a member of EAARS for the remainder of the 2017 Interim Session.
