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.
