Since 2008 Denise Juneau has served as Montana’s State Superintendent of Public Instruction. As a member of the Hidatsa and Mandan Tribes, Denise is the first woman of American Indian heritage elected to a statewide office. She is also another example of a Head Start to Harvard alumna, having attended Head Start in Billings, Montana and received her Master’s degree at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
“I believe in the power of public education to change people’s lives and create opportunity for all,” Denise has said.
