Board of Trustees


Greg Christensen - Chair

Mr. Christensen was born in the Salt Lake area but moved to Bountiful where he grew up and graduated from Bountiful High.  He studied civil engineering at the University of Utah for a short time and then started on the "what do I want to be when I grow up" path.  He worked as a draftsman for a civil engineering firm early in that path and later changed directions, a number of times, finally ending up as a computer programmer analyst.

Mr. Christensen has served in several Kearns community related positions over the years and enjoyed that service and the people he has served with.  In February 2014, Governor Gary Herbert appointed Mr. Christensen to represent District 2, Kearns/Magna, on the Board of Trustees of the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District.

Mr. Christensen married his wife Sharman in 1973 and they are still happily married, even after raising eight children (four girls and four boys) and now having fourteen grandchildren (and waiting for more).  He bought his first and only house in Kearns in 1978 and he and his family moved to the area, which they made their home.
