SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. appointed the head of a job-training program to a seat on the Utah Board of Regents.
Huntsman named Robert Scott Marquardt as a replacement for state schools Superintendent Patti Harrington.
Harrington stepped down last month from the board that controls Utah's public universities and colleges. She said she was too busy as chief administrator of elementary and secondary schools.
Huntsman said Marquardt brings expertise and experience to the Board of Regents.
Marquardt is president and chief executive of Management & Training Corp.
The company operates a job-training program for the federal government and educational services at privatized correctional facilities. MTC manages contracts across the United States from its corporate headquarters in Centerville, Utah.
