Former First Lady Christie Vilsack is returning to Iowa as part of her new federal job promoting international education.

After failing in her bid to unseat Iowa Congressman Steve King last year, Vilsack has worked since March as a senior adviser at the U.S. Agency for International Development in Washington.

Kirkwood Community College says Vilsack will visit its main campus in Cedar Rapids on Wednesday to meet with students from Central America who are studying agricultural business under a USAID scholarship program. Kirkwood says the 37 students are part way through a two-year program, and Vilsack wants to see the progress and connections they have made.

A former teacher, Vilsack is the wife of U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, who served as Iowa governor from 1999 to 2007.
