SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gov. Jon Huntsman has approved 14 candidates for the Utah State Board of Education.

The candidates are:
District 1: Shelly Locke and Susie Campbell Ashilman
District 4: Dave Thomas and Chris L. Dallin
District 7: Randall A. Mackay and Leslie Brooks Castle
District 8: Janet Cannon and Trent Kaufman
