SD72 re-elects chair, vice-chair

Both Susan Wilson and Ted Foster have retained their positions as chair and vice chair of the Board of Education for School District 72.

At the last public meeting of the board, voting took place for the positions, and Wilson (chair) and Foster (vice chair) were both re-elected by acclamation, as no other nominations were received.

Trustees are elected for one-year terms – from December to November – so Wilson and Foster will hold these positions until this time next year, when another election will be held.

“It has been a very interesting first term,” Wilson said after being re-elected, “and I think it will be a very interesting second term.

“When I was elected chair (last term), I expressed the hope that as a team, we would develop and demonstrate such qualities as openness, transparency, trust, respect, and good communication between ourselves as team members – in partnership with senior management – and with the community,” adding she feels they have done just that.

“I am honoured to be chosen as chair of the board again and look forward to a year that will be interesting, challenging and ultimately beneficial to our students and the district as a whole.

“I’m very pleased to be part of this team.”
