In Logan, he became friends with Aggie basketball great Spencer Nelson, and they entered the Missionary Training Center on the same day. Later, they became real estate partners for a small business based in Logan, Utah. He finished his bachelor’s degree at the University of Utah and later obtained a master’s in Public Policy and Administration from Northwestern University.
He married Jane Boyer 10 years ago. They have three boys, Max, George, and Winston.

Bush Institute’s school leadership team to help school districts effectively recruit, retain, and develop K-12 principals and administrators. In addition to education.
