WashingtonExaminer reports President Trump selected Sarah Sanders to serve on the J. William Fulbright Scholarship Board, returning the former White House press secretary to public service.
Sanders, 37, worked in the White House for over three years before leaving the post early this summer. Known for sparring with the press and being the target of sharp criticism, Sanders remained a favorite among the president’s supporters. She received a warm farewell from Trump upon her official exit in July and expressed gratitude to the president for her new posting on the Fulbright Board.” Grateful to @realDonaldTrump to be named to the @fulbrightboard – established by the late U.S. Senator from my home state of Arkansas,” Sanders tweeted late Wednesday evening.
The Fulbright Program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, grants money to students, professionals, researchers, and others to pursue cultural interests abroad. It is world-renowned and considered to be one of the most prestigious grants available. All 12 board members are considered to be highly regarded educators and public figures and are appointed by the president of the United States.
Sanders, daughter of former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, has been serving as a Fox News contributor since her departure from the White House. Some have speculated Sanders is following in her father’s footsteps by considering a run for Arkansas governor. Trump encouraged Sanders to pursue the governorship during a rally this summer.
Sanders has also said that she is writing a memoir about her life that is due to be released near the time of the 2020 election. “Sarah will address subjects including the media, family, faith, and performing an all-consuming and highly visible job while raising her young family,” a statement from her publisher said in September.
