It is an honor to be asked to help with the National Education Board and the NAEP committee also known as the Nation’s Report Card. Utah gets a better return for our investment than any other state in America and I am anxious to share and to learn.
Former Gov. Gary Herbert will serve as a member of the National Assessment Governing Board. Herbert fills an open post on the board that is available for a Republican governor.
General @_ValPeterson@uvu_president, General Jeff Burton, and I had the privilege of participating in the annual @UvuVeterans Day Breakfast where we honored the brave men and women who have served this great country, thank you.
Jeanette and I offer our condolences to the family of Glen Tuckett who passed away at 93. I first met coach Tuckett when he invited me to try out for the BYU baseball team and have been a big fan ever since. A great coach and mentor to 1000's of men and women. He will be missed!
I look forward to joining @GovCox, @UVU_President for the Utah Valley Growth and Prosperity Summit, Thu. Oct. 28. The Summit will explore opportunities for inclusive growth and prosperity for businesses in Utah Valley. Register at uvsummit.com/
Congratulations to my friend and @ZionsBank CEO @AScottAnderson for being elected Chair of the @ABABankers. I know he will do a tremendous job and represent Utah and the banking industry in the best possible way.
I’m proud to be part of a state that continues to welcome and care for refugees. I congratulate @GovCox, @UTRefugeeServe, @CCSUT, @RESCUEorg, and Utah’s generous business community for launching Afghan Community Fund today.
Alongside generous business and community partners, we've announced the creation of the Afghan Community Fund.
This fund will help fill the gap for the 765 Afghan refugees coming to our state, providing for legal support, health care, education, and more.
It was an honor to be asked to speak on the 20th anniversary of September 11th in Park City this morning. Let’s all recommit ourselves in honor of those who perished on that day of infamy to be better people and create a better America and be a light to the world.
Park City marked the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks with a solemn ceremony. The ceremony, held outside Miners Hospital, drew a large crowd in the 7 a.m. hour to commemorate the times the towers of the World Trade Center fell.
Today, Utah’s federal courthouse in Salt Lake City was officially named the Orrin G. Hatch United States Courthouse as a tribute to Senator Hatch's outsized influence in shaping and strengthening the judiciary.
Jeanette and I are devastated to learn of the tragic loss of Staff Sgt. Taylor Hoover, one of Utah’s own. May God bless the family and loved ones he leaves behind and may we all wrap our arms around them. Thank you for your service Sgt. Hoover.
Gov. Gary Herbert led Utah through its most prosperous decade in state history, and its most tumultuous year.
We’re excited to honor his service and leadership at today’s official portrait unveiling ceremony, and we’re forever grateful for all he’s done. Thanks, @GovHerbert!
Opinion: "The more that institutions such as families and faith groups are given the liberty and support to grow and succeed, they can help mold us together for the common good," writes former Utah @GovHerbertdeseret.com/2021/6/7/2251952…
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of the gentle giant and Jazz basketball great Mark Eaton. Jeanette and I offer our condolences to his wife Teri and to their loved ones. He was a good man way beyond his basketball career and will be missed.
I was honored to be with former Utah governor @GovHerbert as he launched the Herbert Public Policy Institute at @UVU. I appreciate his approach to working across the aisle. Though we may not agree on every issue, we can be creative on every difference!
I am so honored and humbled to have received two honorary doctorates yesterday from two of Utah’s fine Universities; @DixieState and @UVU. My sincere thanks to @DSUPres and @uvu_president and their board of trustees. Not a bad way to celebrate my 74th birthday!
