All positions on the Board of Regents will be filled, following Gov. Jon Huntsman's announcement of two new members.
Utah State Board of Education member Teresa Theurer and land use and planning attorney Joel Wright were named Friday, succeeding Sara V. Sinclair and Josh Reid. Reid said he is resigning in July to focus on his business.
"Teresa will be a tremendous asset as a regent," Huntsman said. Theurer has served on the public school board since being elected in 2000. During her tenure, she has served on various committees, including the Utah College of Applied Technology, the Public Education Job Enhancement committee and several state and national health committees. She received a bachelor's degree in nursing from Weber State University.
Wright, who works with local law firm Kirton & McConkie, has served as an interim appointee to the Utah State Charter School Board since January 2007. He has been a Cedar Hills city councilman and earned a bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University and a doctorate from New York University's School of Law.
"As an attorney, a city councilman and a charter school board member, Joel has served the community in so many capacities," Huntsman said. "His perspective will be a great benefit to the Utah System of Higher Education."
Sinclair served as a regent since 2001. She resigned to serve as a federal monitoring surveyor for the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare.
Theurer and Wright must be confirmed by the Utah Senate.
