Nampa Idaho Contractor to Direct Visitor's Center
Spokane WA Spokesman-Review 14Jan00 P2
By Associated Press

BOISE, IDAHO -- Idaho Governor Dirk Kempthorne recently appointed Severina Haws to replace Nampa contractor Jerry Hess on the state Board of Education, after Hess resigned to serve as Director of the LDS Church's Visitor's Center in upstate New York. Hess, a former board member of Micron Technology will serve for two years in the position.

Kempthorne also appointed Roderic Lewis, 44, to a term on the state Board of Education beginning March 1st. Lewis is vice president of legal affairs, general counsel and corporate secretary at Micron Technology and is a BYU graduate with a law degree from Columbia University. Lewis has become known for advocating enhanced engineering educational opportunities in the Boise area, where Micron is based.

"Rod Lewis will bring valuable insight to the board with his legal experience and high-tech industry background," said Kempthorne. "And with all six of his children either students or recent graduates of Idaho public schools, he understands how important it is for our children to receive the best possible education that's geared toward the high-tech economy of the future."

The appointments maintain a seat on the Board occupied by a Micron employee. Micron Technologies is Idaho's largest private employer.
