Hanks said, "I am excited to serve as an officer for the Utah School Boards Association (USBA) for the next 4 years. USBA is committed to building better board members because the strength of our communities begins with local boards of education committed to providing the best education we can with the resources we have available. I hope to use my background as a teacher, parent, board member, and community member to further the mission of USBA by advocating for public education and working with other educational entities across our state in our pursuit of equitable educational excellence throughout Utah."
