Oath of Office
Three members of the Board of Education took their Oaths of Office after winning four-year seats in the November election. Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen administered the oaths to Nancy Tingey, Mont Millerberg, and Holly Neibaur in the Board Chambers of the Canyons District Offices, 9361 S. 300 East. The 6 p.m. event was broadcast live on the District’s YouTube channel so supporters who could not attend in person because of COVID-19-related safety precautions could witness the ceremonies. Tingey, who represents District No. 3, and Millerberg, District No. 1, were re-elected to their seats. First-time Board member Neibaur succeeds Chad Iverson in the District No. 7 seat to represent schools in Draper. Iverson did not run for re-election. After being sworn into office, Neibaur, Millerberg, and Tingey delivered short remarks. Neibaur, a former teacher, said she looks forward to joining the Canyons team, and noted that now more than ever, communities need to focus on ensuring that children are provided access to educational services. Millerberg, who represents the Midvale-area schools, said it was the third time he’s taken the oath for a position on the Board of Education, and looks forward to what can be achieved in the next four years. He noted such achievements as the increase in CSD student achievement; the progress of the Board’s ambitious school-improvement plan, which has been fueled by two general-obligation bonds; and the substantial pay increase for CSD’s educators. He looks forward to even more progress in the coming four years. Tingey, whose district covers parts of Sandy and Cottonwood Heights, called public-education a “noble endeavor,” and said it was humbling to take the oath of office for her third term. “Education is not a state of being,” she said, “it’s a process and continuum that is all about facing and conquering new frontiers.”
