The Utah State Board of Education recently hired Amy Fullmer as the Agriculture and Welding Educational Specialist, and Utah FFA State Advisor.
Amy was born and raised on a dairy farm in Elwood, UT, where she spent her childhood milking cows, feeding calves, moving hand pipes, and raising her personal drove of show hogs. After graduating top of her class at Bear River High School, Amy went to Utah State University to pursue a degree in Agricultural Education. During those years, she served as State FFA President, College of Agriculture Student Senator, and other leadership roles within the College of Ag. Amy graduated cum laude and left Logan to study with the US Grains Council abroad in Malaysia and Taiwan followed by living in Maine and Vermont for nearly two years.
Amy has 8 years of in-classroom teaching experience ranging from AgEd at Weber/Fremont High School and Granite Technical Institute to her current position at Panguitch Middle School teaching Integrated Science and College and Career Awareness. She has been an online professor for 8 years teaching International Entrepreneurship in Agribusiness. Amy has a Master’s of Education in Career & Technical Education, an Administrative Supervisory License, as well as an Integrated Science Endorsement.
At the mouth of Bryce Canyon National Park in Panguitch, UT is where you will find Amy living with her husband, daughter, and son. She spends her days helping her husband run their printing/framing business, crafting with her daughter, driving toy tractors with her son, and sitting on the beaches of Lake Powell with her friends. Amy loves to garden, mountain/road bike, and eat sushi.
Amy is excited for the opportunity to serve as the Agricultural Education Specialist. She has been one of the countless recipients of the influence of Buddy Deimler and hopes to build on the legacy he leaves behind in providing students opportunities to “develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.”
We're excited to have Amy joining our team and look forward to all that she brings to the table!
