New Executive Elected for The Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation


The Directors of The Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, elected new Executive members at last week’s Board meeting.

Geoff Cudmore was elected to the position of Chair, and David Clazie to the position of Treasurer.

Geoff and his wife Katie moved to this area in 2002 when he accepted the position of Dean of Media Studies at Loyalist College in Belleville. In 2007 he became Associate Vice-President Academic and then Acting Vice-President Academic, a role he held until his retirement in August of 2010.

Geoff has a B.A. from Brock University and an M.ED from Central Michigan University and earned his Doctorate in Education through Edith Cowan University of Perth, Australia in 2006.

Along with the role of Chair of the Learning Foundation, Geoff is a Past-President and Treasurer of the Rotary Club of Quinte Sunrise, is a Director of the National Air Force Museum of Canada and the National Air Force Museum of Canada Foundation, and is the organizer of the Terry Fox Run in Griffith, Ontario.

David and his wife Jennifer have lived in the Belleville area their entire lives.  David was a student of the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board from Kindergarten until his graduation from Moira Secondary School.

David graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with an Honours degree in Business Administration and then went on to work for Ernst & Young LLP and KPMG LLP where he obtained his CA (Chartered Accountant) designation. 

David is currently the Director of Corporate and Financial Services/City Treasurer for the City of Quinte West; a position he has held since November of 2007.  Previous to working for the City of Quinte West, David was the Manager of Accounting for the City of Kingston.

Along with the role of Treasurer of The Learning Foundation, David was previously the Treasurer for Catundra Day Care Centre and a board member of St. Mark’s United Church.

As Chair Geoff Cudmore expressed after his election, “This is an opportunity for me to continue with the great work that’s being done in the community by The Learning Foundation.”

Student Emergency Fund

The objective of the Student Emergency Fund is  to give immediate assistance to Students,

and perhaps their families, by providing financial aid and/or gift-in-kind support. This funding

could be used to purchase items such as eyeglasses, EpiPens, medical supplies, food and clothing, transportation, to subsidize field trips, or to assist with additional financial needs that result                     from family crises (fire, flood, layoffs, illness, etc).
