Bev Perdue

BevPerdue.png

Bev Perdue was elected North Carolina’s 73rd governor in 2008, the first woman to serve as chief executive of the state.
Gov. Perdue’s pioneering efforts in education innovation and reform are the hallmark of her more than 25 years in public service. Her “Career & College: Ready, Set Go!” agenda was a comprehensive approach to keeping students on grade level, improving graduation rates and increasing the number of students seeking college degrees or career training after high school. At the end of her tenure as governor, North Carolina’s graduation rate topped 80 percent for the first time ever.
