Andrew Scoggin, an Albertsons executive, will replace Bill Goesling, whose term has expired on Idaho’s State Board of Education, Gov. Butch Otter has announced.
“Andy’s wealth of knowledge and service from the private, public and non-profit sectors will benefit Idaho’s State Board of Education,” Otter said.
Scoggin has a law degree from Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark Law School.
He went to work for Albertsons Inc. labor relations department in 1993.
“I believe that we have real momentum in the State of Idaho right now to move forward on an agenda of improving education by providing direction, accountability and transparency,” Scoggin said.
Scoggin will serve a five year term.
The State Board is a policy-making body for public education in grades K-20.
