Oaths of Office and a vote for the Board’s leadership were the highlights of the first meeting of 2019 for the Canyons Board of Education. 

The Board of Education will now be led by Nancy Tingey, the first woman to serve as Canyons Board President. Steve Wrigley, who in November was re-elected to his third term to District No. 5, was elected as a Vice President, his second time in Board leadership. Amber Shill, who also was re-elected to her seat, returned to Board leadership in an other Vice President post.

Before the vote for leadership positions, the Board discussed Canyons policy that states the elected body should have a president and a vice president. For four years, the Board has added a 2nd Vice President to the leadership group. Board member Mont Millerberg encouraged the Board to return to two-person leadership, saying that the three-person leadership team lends itself to having a near-winning-vote coalition on any issue. On a six-to-one vote, with Millerberg voting against the motion, the Board decided to have one president and two vice presidents.   

In addition to Wrigley, the representative for District No. 5, and Shill, the represetative for District No. 2, Board members Clareen Arnold and Amanda Oaks took Oaths of Office after winning their respective District 4 and District 6 races in the November 2017 General Election.  Arnold won re-election and Oaks was newly elected to the seat that’s been held by former Board President and inaugural CSD Board member Sherril H. Taylor, who did not run for re-election.

The Oaths of Office were administered by Megan Allen, the chief clerk of the Utah House of Representatives. After each re-elected and newly elected member took the oath, they were invited to address the audience for a few minutes to thank friends and family members, outline their goals for their terms of office, and present philosophies about governance.

Former Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes delivered the closing remarks. He stated that he’s proud of the first 10 years of Canyons’ operations, especially the improvements to the District’s schools. He urged the District to remain true to its guiding tenets, and emphasized how important public education is to Utahns. 

Also District also hosted a short reception for re-elected and new Board members.
