Cleo Mathews, a former president of the state Board of Education who also served as Hinton mayor from 2001 through 2008, said the family was thrilled to hear Burwell might be nominated.
"It's an honor for her to be considered," Mathews said. For 77-year-old Mathews, seeing her daughter in the running for White House budget director is a testament to the American Dream. Mathews' parents were Greek immigrants who came to America to provide a better life for their children. She and her siblings were the first generation of her family to go to college. Now her daughter - a Rhodes Scholar and Harvard graduate - has risen to the heights of U.S. government. "She's a grandchild of poor Greek immigrants that came here and worked hard and sent their kids to college," Mathews said. "It just shows that this country works, it still works for all of us." Mathews said her daughter's interest in politics began at a very young age. When she was in grade school, she helped campaign for her best friend's father, who was running for Summers County Commissioner. At 11, she and her friends volunteered to help out with Jay Rockefeller's first gubernatorial campaign. "They were out campaigning for Jay - they were just little kids," Mathews said.
