“I am happy to endorse Mike Haynes for state school board. I have had the opportunity to see Mike in my schools. He has sought out input from teachers, asked questions about how to support our local schools, always with the student at the heart of every decision. Mike is invested in the success of our students and is willing to put in the time and effort to fully research issues. Mike’s desire to make correct decisions while constantly seeking input from local school boards is essential for providing the right supports for our teachers and students. We need Mike’s humility, curiosity, and strength to support education in Utah”. – Julie King, Alpine School District Board Member

“I have known Mike Haynes for 10 years. I have watched as he has supported public education through his work on the Jordan Education Foundation Board. He wants what is best for students! As my Utah State Board of Education representative for the past several months, I have found Mike to be responsive to my phone calls and open to ideas I have presented to him. I am pleased to recommend Mike Haynes for Utah State Board of Education”. – Jennifer Boehme, 27-year educator

“We have had the privilege of working with Mike for years in educational and volunteer settings within our community. We know him to be hard working and diligent in his efforts to see all sides of a situation before making decisions that affect others. He is passionate about education and providing the best opportunities for the children of Utah. We are proud to endorse Mike Haynes to keep his position on the State School Board”. – Jon & Jodee Packer, PTSA President at Bingham High School

“I have been amazed and impressed watching Mike Haynes fill the position on State Board of Education. He listens to constituents, gathers information from all sources and makes wise decisions. Mike is always in meetings smiling and carefully gathering information, even when attendance is optional, because he takes his responsibility to represent you and I seriously. Mike is easy to talk to and is a great listener. I fully support Mike Haynes for State School Board”. – Rep. Susan Pulsipher, Utah House of Representatives – District 50 

“I wholeheartedly endorse Mike Haynes for State School Board. I have had the opportunity to serve alongside Mike with the Jordan Education Foundation over the past several years and I have felt his passion firsthand for the teachers, administrators and students within Jordan School District. He has always impressed me with his excitement and willingness to find ways to improve the educational experience for each one that he meets. Mike isn’t someone who sits and hopes for others to take action, he is a doer of his words and a great leader by example. When it comes to passion about education, Mike is on the top of my list. I believe Mike is the best person to represent our district on the school board. He will truly have our teachers, administrators and most importantly our children’s best interests in mind as he represents them on the state board”. – Tyler Pettit, President, Jordan Education Foundation
