Speaker Hughes Statement on Mark Openshaw

Speaker Hughes Statement on Mark Openshaw

I’m saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Mark Openshaw and members of his family. As a member of Utah’s State Board of Education, Mark was a champion of education reform and bringing our schools into the 21st Century through technology and innovation.

His work has helped improve Utah’s schools and will have a lasting impact on the education of our school children.  

Mark has been an invaluable leader but more importantly he has been a close colleague and my friend.  I will miss him.  Our  thoughts and prayers go out to those close to the Openshaw family during this sad and difficult time.
