Trustee Dwayne Inch was elected as chair of the Board at a public Board meeting held Monday, June 20, 2011. This election was required as a result of the passing of former chair Carl Pitman who passed away in May 2011.
Trustee Inch will serve in this role until the annual election in December 2011. He expressed appreciation to his fellow Board members for placing their trust in him, and also to Vice-chair Mary Hall for her leadership during May and June.
As a result of the above-noted, Trustee Dave Patterson was elected as chair of the Operations and Finance Committee, taking the place of Trustee Inch. Trustee Thelma Goodfellow was elected as the representative to the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, with Trustee Mary Hall as the alternate.
