“I am honored to be selected by the Speaker to take on this responsibility,” Perales said. “Higher education is essential to create jobs, promote economic development, and most importantly keep our best and brightest right here in Ohio. I’m looking forward to leading the charge to ensure all of our institutions have the tools they need to continue turning out a skilled and driven workforce.”
