State Board of Education – District 11
Hi, I’m Mike Haynes. I’m currently serving on the Utah State Board of Education representing District 11.
I have dedicated much of my life, my time, and energy to support and improve the educational outcomes for students within the state of Utah. I have spent time in the classroom teaching Junior Achievement’s Entrepreneurialism Curriculum, I raise money to meet the needs of the classroom, I led efforts to increase the number of classrooms and schools in our community, and as a member of the State Board I contributed to policy that improves what goes on in the classroom. I love our students, our educators, our administrators, and all of those who do so much for our children in Utah. I’m confident that I will be able to continue to provide the leadership and support this district needs. I’m the right person for this position, and I know if you vote for me, I will continue to use my experience and skills to advance the educational opportunities every child in Utah deserves.
