Pyfer selected to state school board

Former Logan Municipal councilmember Tami Pyfer has been appointed by Governor Gary Herbert to serve on the State Board of Education for District 1. Pyfer, who served eight years on the council but decided not to run for a third term, says she is delighted about the new assignment. Pyfer says she feels the new position will fit nicely with her job as a clinical instructor in the Utah State University Department of Special Education. “Since I’m involved in teacher training on campus I’ve stayed up on most of those issues that are facing the schools,” Pyfer said on KVNU’s For the People program Monday. Pyfer has two children in the public school system. She previously served as director of the Logan Schools Foundation and she has also been a PTA president. “So it’s a natural continuation of what I do professionally, anyway,” Pyfer continued. “Then where I wanted to go, getting involved with the boys the next couple of years, it’s a really nice fit.” If confrmed by the Utah Senate, she will fill the vacancy left when Shelly Locke stepped down to spend more time speaking out on families. District 1 includes Cache, Rich and Box Elder counties along with parts of Morgan and Summit counties. Pyfer is planning on getting started with the school board as early as this Friday.
