Woolstenhulme Selected as UCAT Commissioner

A former President of the Uintah Basin Applied Technology College has been selected as Utah’s first Commissioner of Technical Education. The Utah College of Applied Technology made the announcement Thursday that Dr. David R. Woolstenhulme was selected following the quarterly meeting of the UCAT Board of Trustees. Board Chairman Jim Evans said there were great candidates and the selection process was long, comprehensive and deliberate. “It is an honor to be selected by the Board,” said Dr. Woolstenhulme. “I am grateful for the confidence they have shown in me and I am excited to be part of our fantastic statewide ATC system. I look forward to the great things that we can accomplish at UCAT.” UBATC is one of 8 campuses governed by UCAT whose focus is to provide Utah with skilled workers. The Board’s decision must now be approved by Governor Gary Herbert with consent of the Utah State Senate.
