Heather Wilson resigns as AF Secretary

Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson has resigned to take the top post at the University of Texas at El Paso.

Wilson, a former member of Congress, submitted her resignation Friday morning, the Air Force confirmed in a statement. Her resignation will be effective May 31.

The UT System Board of Regents selected Wilson as the only finalist to be the next president of the University of Texas at El Paso on Friday.

In her two years as Air Force Secretary, Wilson was one of the guiding forces behind the establishment of the Space Force, a project boosted by President Donald Trump. As he envisioned it originally, the force would have been equal to the Army, Navy and Air Force.
