Matt Hymas was raised in West Valley City, Utah. He has a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics Teaching from the University of Utah, a Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix, and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Central Michigan University. He has been in education since 2008 as a teacher, coach, athletic director, junior high director, assistant secondary director, and is currently a high school director at American Preparatory Academy in West Valley. Matt is an advocate for education in all forms and believes that regardless of where a family chooses to be educated, it is the best possible education for them.

His time as an administrator has brought a different perspective to the needs of families and communities. When he’s not working, Matt enjoys spending time in the mountains—any time he can get to a lake or river for fishing, he’ll take it. He also enjoys coaching, working with his hands, and simply being near his family.
