Two men replace women exiting Utah state school board

Utah’s governor has appointed two men to replace two women who recently moved out of state and resigned from the Utah Board of Education.

Gov. Gary Herbert appointed Michael Haynes to replace Lisa Cummins as the representative from District 11, which includes South Jordan, Herriman, Riverton and Bluffdale, and extends into western Utah County.

Mark Marsh was appointed to replace Alisa Allis in representing District 12, which includes all of eastern Utah, from Coalville and Heber City to the Colorado boarder.

Voters typically elect members of the board. Haynes' and Marsh's terms will expire at the end of 2020.

Herbert also made appointments to the Utah Board of Regents, which oversees public colleges and universities. Alan Hall and Lisa-Michele Church were newly appointed to the board, along with University of Utah student Sheva Mozafari, as student regent. Herbert also reappointed members Jesselie Anderson and Sanch Datta.

Herbert also made appointments to the Board of Trustees overseeing state technical colleges. Brett Barton was selected to be the new life science sector representative, Jera Baily will represent the health care sector, Stacey K. Bettridge will represent the transportation sector, and Russell Lamoreaux was reappointed as union, craft and trade sector representative. Arthur Newell was appointed and Mike Angus, Charles K. Taylor, and Stephen Wade reappointed as college representatives on the board of trustees.
