BOISE, Idaho — Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter has reappointed Dr. David Hill to a five-year term on the Idaho State Board of Education after filling a vacancy on the panel nearly three years ago.

Otter announced the appointment Thursday.

Hill is a retired executive vice president of the Battelle Energy Alliance and deputy director for science and technology at the Idaho National Laboratory. Hill is also a member of the governor’s Higher Education Task Force and co-chair of the governor’s Workforce Development Task Force.

Otter says Hill’s leadership and perspective have been invaluable in improving the state’s education system.
