CHARLES TOWN, W.V., Nov. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — American Public University System (APUS) today announced that Javier Miyares has been appointed to its Board of Trustees.

“At APUS, we aspire to be the best value in lifelong adult education for the service-minded student. We are confident that Mr. Miyares’ track record and leadership will advance APUS in its ambition to help students leverage education to achieve their purposes and become successful in the next chapters of their lives,” said Frank Ball, APUS Board of Trustee Chairman. “The trustees share in my excitement, and we enthusiastically welcome him to our Board.”
