Distinguished Alumnus:
Mark Boughton '95
MS, Elementary Education

Mark D. Boughton, now mayor and a life-long Danbury resident, attended Danbury Public Schools, and graduated from Danbury High School in 1982. Upon graduation, he remained in Connecticut and attended Central Connecticut State University, earning a B.S. in History. Boughton, a leading advocate for quality education for Connecticut children, earned his M.S. in Education from WestConn in 1995, and was employed at Danbury High School as Social Studies teacher since 1987.

In addition to his extensive educational background, Boughton spent six years in the Army Reserve as an infantryman and Drill Sergeant. Through these experiences, he brings with him a wealth of knowledge in terms of leadership skills and strong work ethic. These skills, combined with his ability to bring people together, should allow Danbury’s new mayor to lead the city down a positive path of growth and prosperity.

Public service runs deep in the Boughton family. His father, Don, served as state representative for Danbury from the 109th District. Boughton was a member of the Planning Commission for the City of Danbury from 1994 to 1998. He is also a member of the Danbury Republican Town Committee, the Danbury Jaycees and the WCSU Alumni Association Board of Directors.
