Dear Superintendents,

Congratulations to Scott Marion, Executive Director at the Center for Assessment, who was appointed to the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB). Scott was the Director of Assessment and Accountability in Wyoming until 2003. He continues to work with the Wyoming State Board of Education, the WDE, and the Wyoming Legislature on education accountability. Until 2020, former Wyoming Governor Jim Geringer served on NAGB. It’s always good to have Wyoming ties in national leadership positions.
