Charter schools are governed by a volunteer parent board. The Soldier Hollow Charter School Board is made up of seven individuals who all share the same commitment and passion for creating a world-class learning environment for our students.


Get to know your school board members by reading their bios below. If you need to reach the board, you can email them here.


Lonny Reed, ChairLonny Reed is a Utah Valley native and graduated from Utah State University in civil engineering.

As the owner of Legend Engineering in Heber, Lonny has worked with many charter schools in Utah and Arizona to plan, develop and build new school campuses. In 2009, as the school was looking for options to expand enrollment and with limited space, his company volunteered to help with the engineering, survey and construction of the portables addition.

He, his wife Megan and their three children are amazed at the caliber of education that they are receiving at Soldier Hollow.

C.S. (Chris) Hughes, Vice ChairMy wife Sky and I relocated to Heber City from Murrieta, CA in July of 2010 with our 4 children. After meeting our Principle and touring the school, it was an easy decision to enroll our children in Soldier Hollow. There is no close second choice in the valley and we feel blessed to have found this school.

I am an entrepreneur with a background in public speaking, sales, marketing, leadership and business. From 1999-2010 I was the CEO of a Legal Services company. I retired from that business when we moved to Utah, so that I could pursue other passions.

My desire to serve on the school board stems from my experience of being “educated” in less than competent Texas schools. Solider Hollow is a rare gem… it’s very special and I want to do whatever small part I can to make it even better.

My duties on the board primarily include marketing, advertising and imaging, including a complete re-branding of the school and designing and building a new school website from the ground up.

Claudia Heusch, SecretaryI should start by telling you how I came to United States and Utah. In 1998 while I was working in Cartonajes Hernandez in the Dominican Republic as their structural manager I started dating my now husband Chris Heusch. He was already living in the US in Maryland, that summer he decided to move to Utah. He had started his own company and could live anywhere in the states.After visiting him several times I was offered a working visa by the Architecture Firm in Park City, so in the summer of 2000 I moved to Holladay, Utah. That same year in November we got married.

After two years we decided to have family and in December 2002 we welcome our first baby Matthew, that same year we found this great lot with the most amazing view in Heber and built our dream home. We moved to Heber in January 2005 and later that year welcome our second baby Maggie. Looking around the valley for schools for my son and also trying to educate myself about the American school system (very different from what I experience in the D.R. and from the school system in Germany) I went to Soldier Hollow Charter School and offered to volunteer. What a surprise it was to be asked to teach Spanish for the 8th graders and I accepted the challenge. I have to admit I am not a teacher but Spanish is my first language and I guess that helps.

After two years I had to stop teaching Spanish for the 8th graders due to schedule conflicts with training back in my field. I was asked by the board in 2008 to substitute one of the board members for the rest of the school year, After that I ran for the board and I am now in my 4th year as a board member.

Dave has successfully managed revenue recognition, company consolidations, and complicated debt structures.

Jamie MorganOur family relocated to Midway from Steamboat Springs, CO when I joined Leavitt Group of Wasatch-Summit as Co-Owner / Commercial Agent.

I specialize to commercial property & casualty insurance programs and have worked in the industry for 16 years. I began my insurance career as an Underwriter with Allied Group / Denver following my degree in Mathematics-Actuarial Science from Colorado State University.

We love the outdoor recreation opportunities living in Midway, UT and I try to ride my bicycles a few times each week. We regularly ride through Midway on route to the parks & playgrounds with a typical stop for ice cream at Fill-er-Up. As a former competitive cyclist, I love watching our girls discover and enjoy their bicycles on our family rides.

My daughters, Ava and Neva, have thrived within the Soldier Hollow Charter School learning environment. I can’t wait to cross-country ski with our family this coming Winter at Soldier Hollow.
