Diana Jean Ohman (born October 3, 1950) is a retired politician who was the Secretary of State of Wyoming from 1994 to 1998. Early in her career, Ohman held various educational positions in Wyoming from the 1970s to 1990s. Ohman also served as Superintendent of public instruction for Wyoming from 1990 to 1994 before starting her Secretary of State tenure. After ending her political career, Ohman was in charge of several divisions of the Department of Defense Education Activity from 1999 to 2011. After joining the Department of Veteran Affairs that year, Ohman oversaw cemeteries in Midwestern United States until her 2018 retirement.

Early life and education

Ohman's birth was on October 3, 1950 in Sheridan, Wyoming.[1] During her childhood, Ohman lived in Gurley, Nebraska.[2] For her post-secondary studies, Ohman started with an Associate of Arts from Casper College in 1970. Throughout the 1970s, Ohman attended University of Wyoming for two additional degrees in education.[3] At Wyoming, Ohman studied primary education and administration.[4]


After completing her studies, Ohman briefly worked in Casper, Wyoming as a kindergarten teacher.[5][6] Between the early 1970s to late 1980s, Ohman primarily held various educational position in Gillette, Wyoming ranging from teacher to associate director. In 1987, Ohman went to Torrington, Wyoming and became a primary school principal.[7] For her political career, Ohman defeated Lynn Simons in 1990 to become the Superintendent of public instruction for Wyoming as part of the Republican Party.[8] During her tenure, the Wyoming School for the Deaf was to be shut down after Ohman introduced this idea to Governor Mike Sullivan in late 1991.[9] The following year, Ohman and the Wyoming State Legislature decided to have the School for the Deaf remain open.[10] Before her superintendent position ended, Ohman announced in April 1994 that she would not run for re-election.[11]

That year, Ohman chose to run for the Secretary of State of Wyoming position instead of a seat in the Wyoming House of Representatives.[12] At the 1994 Wyoming Secretary of State election, Ohman beat Nick Deegan.[13] While completing her term, Ohman co-created a plan to redistribute legislative seats in Wyoming electronically called the Global Information System.[14] During the 1998 elections, Ohman was a write-in candidate for the Governor of Wyoming position and did not run again as Secretary of State.[5][15] In March 1999, Ohman continued her superintendent experience when she became a school superintendent in Laramie County, Wyoming.[16]

In July 1999, Ohman moved to a governmental career when she became a deputy director at the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA).[17] She was in charge of the organization's European division before being selected to lead the DoDEA's Pacific division in 2009.[18] She remained with the DoDEA until she joined the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2011. With the National Cemetery Administration department, Ohman was in charge of cemeteries throughout Midwestern United States until her retirement in 2018.[19][6]

Awards and honors

During her educational career, Ohman was named the best teacher for Campbell County, Wyoming in 1980 and given a 1990 state principal award from the U.S. Office of Education.[20] For her contributions in education, Ohman was given an alumni award by Casper College Foundation in 2009.[21]
