The State Board of Education recently voted to appoint Christine M. Thompson as executive director for the organization. Thompson succeeds Vince Yanez who announced earlier this month that he will leave the post to accept a position at the Arizona Community Foundation.

Thompson has been involved in public policy for two decades. Before joining the State Board of Education in 2012 as deputy director, Thompson served as associate vice president for government affairs for the Arizona Board of Regents and as director of government relations for the State Bar of Arizona. Her background also includes work in communications, development and alumni relations, and management of a nonprofit involved in higher education advocacy.

Active in the community, Thompson currently serves as a member of the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education Board of Directors, and as a member of the University of Arizona College of Law Association Board of Directors. She previously served as chairman of Kids Voting Arizona, as treasurer of Soroptomist International of Phoenix, and, appointed by Gov. Hull, as student regent on the Arizona Board of Regents. Thompson attended K-12 in Arizona public schools, and received her BA and JD from the University of Arizona.
