The Governor's Good Advice

Our governor held her last televised news conference this morning at the Eccles Broadcast Center. Listen to her passion for education and public service:

"Get as much education as you can. Reach out. Dream your dream. Get involved. Do the hard work. Lay the groundwork. There's been no greater experience for any individual, male or female, than to be involved in public service."
--Olene S. Walker

Next month we'll see how Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. likes this venue.

Blogging Principal

What elementary school principal would make it a priority to write a blog and post Flickr photos to the web?

The school's site also is in a blog format.
