SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has appointed a new member of the Utah State Board of Education.
Terryl Warner will fill the District 1 seat vacated by Tami Pyfer, who resigned in January to become the governor's education adviser.
Warner is the current director of victim services for the Cache County Attorney's Office, a post she has held since 2004.
The governor in a statement said Warner's experience working with children in the court system makes her valuable to the board.
Warner has a bachelor's degree from the University of Southern California's Annenberg School of Communications, where she studied public relations.
The board parcels out state dollars to individual school districts. It also sets curriculum standards, approves charter schools and oversees teacher licensing.
