Inch expressed appreciation to fellow Board members for placing their trust in him.
"I have enjoyed working as interim chair after the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Carl Pitman, earlier this year. The community has entrusted us with our most precious commodities: children. As trustees, our job comes with challenges, and yet they are overshadowed when children perform their best. I want to thank Director of Education Rob McGall for his encouragement and support, and the senior team and staff for keeping us organized," Inch remarked.
Williams, in his remarks for wanting to run for vice-chair, expressed sentiments relating to student achievement.
"Students are our number one priority. We must continue to focus on their success through development of character, academic excellence and social skills. As trustees, we endeavour to see students grow in character and knowledge," stated Williams. Pictured right: Jim Williams, Vice-chair of the Board.
