Women in the News: Elena Kagan

Solicitor General, Elena Kagan has just been nominated by President Obama to the Supreme Court. President Obama has called her "one of the foremost legal minds in the nation." If confirmed, this will bring the number of women on the nation's highest court to 3. Before becoming Solicitor General, Kagan was the first woman to become dean of Harvard Law School. She comes from New York City where she went to a public high school. She studied at Princeton, Oxford and Harvard and was a clerk for Justice Marshall. Though officially a democrat, she will most likely be confirmed as she has not been extremely vocal on political issues and has in the past worked well with both Republicans and Democrats. Good Luck Elena!

To all of you Imagine Today fans, keep up your hard work doing what you are best at and learning what you're not!
