Rep. Derrick Graham, D-Frankfort
Kentucky House leaders on Friday appointed Frankfort Democrat Derrick Graham as the new chairman of the House Education Committee.
Graham, who recently retired as a social studies teacher at Frankfort High School, has served in the House since 2003. He has been a member of the Education Committee and has served as chairman of the budget subcommittee on primary and secondary education.
House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, said Graham “has dedicated his life to education and has a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities Kentucky faces academically.”
Graham replaces Carl Rollins, a Midway Democrat, who recently resigned his House seat to take a job heading Kentucky’s student financial aid agencies.
