Marc F. Racicot

Marc F. Racicot, who stepped down as the governor of Montana in January after two terms, was elected the new chairman of America's Promise this month. He replaces Colin L. Powell, who founded the group after he retired as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Mr. Powell relinquished most of his duties with the group, which encourages volunteerism on behalf of children, when President Bush tapped him to be the U.S. secretary of state. Mr. Racicot, 53, will guide the Alexandria, Va.-based organization in providing youths with mentors, effective education, and a safe learning environment.
