Carney announces picks to head Dept. of Ed., DNREC

Governor-elect John Carney announced his picks for two cabinet posts Friday.


Carney nominated Dr. Susan Bunting as Secretary of the Department of Education, and Shawn Garvin as Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.


Bunting has been Superintendent of the Indian River School District since 2006. In 2012, she was a finalist for a national superintendent of the year award.


Bunting has almost 40 years of education experience in the state.


Carney’s pick to head DNREC, Shawn Garvin, has been a regional administrator for the US Environmental Protection Agency since 2009.


Garvin oversaw the EPA’s work in much of the Mid-Atlantic, including Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C.


State senators will decide whether to confirm the picks in the next legislative session that starts in January.
