Dr. Terry K. Peterson joins the NLP board


The News Literacy Project is pleased to announce that Dr. Terry K. Peterson, who served as counselor to former U.S. Education Secretary Richard Riley, has joined its board.

Peterson spearheaded numerous national education initiatives during the Clinton administration as well as state reforms as education adviser to Riley during his governorship of South Carolina. In both positions, Riley said, Peterson was his “right-hand man.”

He remains deeply involved in education as a senior fellow at the College of Charleston, director of the Afterschool and Community Learning National Network and chairman of the national Afterschool Alliance.

Peterson called the News Literacy Project “very impressive” and “a very important effort.” His involvement will further enhance NLP’s credibility in the education community, provide valuable expertise and experience and make a strong board that much stronger.
