Martha Kanters selection by President Barak Obama to be the U.S. undersecretary of education is a truly deserved appointment. As a former Executive vice-president of the De Anza College student body (DASB)and De Anza College employee I became acutely aware of her desire for students to suceed in academics and student life. Her sincere open door policy was well known and admired by students.
