Palo Alto man appointed to federal post


Palo Alto resident Williamson Evers has been appointed by President George W. Bush to be assistant secretary in the Office of Education for Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development.

Everson is an educational research fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution. He resigned from the Santa Clara County Board of Education after the announcement was made last week.

Evers has represented Palo Alto, Sunnyvale and Mountain View school districts on the county board since 2004.

Evers is a member of Hoover's Koret Task Force on K-12 education and served as a policy advisor to Bush during his presidential campaigns in 2000 and 2004.
