Making a Difference in Public Education

Laurel Fetzer-
Candidate for Utah State School Board District 5

April 21, 2022


My name is Laurel Fetzer. I am running for the Utah State School Board in District 5. I am a mother of 4 children. I've been a volunteer for over 20 years as my children have progressed through school. I've been a PTA president/co-president for 3 years in my kids elementary school and 4 years at Murray High School. I've helped in every elementary classroom my kids have attended, run balloon fundraisers, helped run concessions at football and basketball games for 3 years.  I helped set up a program called Spartan Strong at Murray High.  Students can come during lunch to listen to an inspirational speaker, eat pizza or lunch and work off a U in citizenship. For the last four years, I have been the volunteer coordinator for the University of Utah Science and Engineering Fair for MCSD.  


I have my bachelors and masters degrees both from the University of Utah. My BS is in Exercise Physiology with two minors in Math and Chemistry, and a MS in Foods and Nutrition. I am a part time Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Functional Medicine practitioner. I love counseling people to help improve their health with nutrition, exercise, and balanced lifestyle principles.


I am worried about the direction of education in Utah and would like to be part of the solution. I would like to help keep schools focused on academics, create policies that support teachers teaching the subjects they love and help create policies at the State level that support Utah values.
