Education Initiatives

Lieutenant Governor Matos oversees two initiatives for high school students in the State of Rhode Island.


To foster and support our Rhode Island students during their K-12 educational journey.


Supporting Rhode Island students is paramount to ensuring that they can grow and fulfill their dreams in their home state once graduated from high school. We achieve this end by honoring our top graduating seniors through the Lieutenant Governor Leadership Award and fostering entrepreneurship and creativity through the Lieutenant Governor’s Entrepreneurship Challenge.
