Otter names two to Ed Board

Boise - The Idaho StatesmanJuly 17, 2014 

Gov. Butch Otter has named a former deputy director for science and technology at the Idaho National Laboratory and a former Cassia County School Board chairwoman to the State Board of Education.

David Hill, who worked at INL, is a retired executive vice president of the Battelle Energy Alliance and chairman of the Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission, a program backed by Otter to create jobs from research at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies, Idaho National Laboratory and the state's three universities. He lives in Boise.

Debbie Critchfield, the former school board chairwoman, is a member of the Cassia County Republican Central Committee, the State Technology Task force and the State Dual Credit Task Force. She lives in Oakley.

"They are champions of local control of our schools and they have a keen understanding of the big picture — the critical importance of building a world-class education system for our students, our families, our communities and our economy," Otter said.
