CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Gov. Brian Sandoval has appointed an education policy scholar from the George W. Bush Institute as the next Nevada state superintendent.

Sandoval announced Monday that he's appointed James W. Guthrie to take the post April 2. Guthrie replaces Keith Rheault (ROW), who is retiring.

Guthrie has served as an education specialist in the U.S. Senate, and worked in the education schools of the University of California, Berkeley, Vanderbilt University, Southern Methodist University and the University of Southern California.

Guthrie has a bachelor's degree, master's degree and Ph.D. from Stanford University. He completed one postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University and another at Oxford Brooks College in the United Kingdom.

A new law passed by state lawmakers last year gives the governor, rather than the state board, authority to appoint the superintendent.
