When NAFUSA Board Member Catherine Hanaway was first elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 1998, she was a freshman lawmaker in a body dominated by Democrats. By the time she left the House in 2004, she had become its first female Speaker in half a century. After her time in the House, President George W. Bush appointed her U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri. Since then, in the private sector, she has built a successful law practice. A mother-of-two who grew up in rural Nebraska and Iowa, Catherine Hanaway is now seeking to be elected as the governor of Missouri.
