We’re especially excited for all of our blog posts this week, as it’s Back To Campus Week here at FFL! With FFL product giveaways on Twitter and Instagram, new back to school products, as well as campus themed content, it was safe of you to assume that our WCW would follow suit! This week, we’re featuring Margaret Spellings.

From 2005 – 2009, Margaret Spellings served under President George W. Bush as the 8th Secretary Of Education. Margaret was nominated to this position by the president himself on November 17, 2004, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on January 20, 2005. (This date also marked the beginning of Bush’s second presidential term! We miss you and all your patriotic sass, W.)

Spellings is the second female Secretary of Education, however, before being appointed to the Bush’s presidential administration, she was the political director for Bush’s first gubernatorial campaign in 1994. She later became a senior advisor to Bush during his term as Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000.

At FFL, we admire Margaret Spellings because even in times of controversy, she worked hard for what she believed in. Whether you agree with her politics or not, there’s no doubt that Spellings is a dedicated public servant.
