The Kenora Catholic District School Board is thankful for stability in their team of trustees, following the 2018 Municipal Election.
There were no changes for the Kenora Catholic District School Board, as incumbent board chair Frank Bastone, incumbent board vice-chair Teresa Gallik, and incumbent trustees Paul Landry, Michael Favreau and Anne Sweeney all returned.
“We’re very happy that we’re going to continue with the stability within our board. We’re going in a good direction, and having our trustees already up to speed, is a bonus to us,” said Director of Education for the KCDSB, Phyllis Eikre.
“We’re pleased to be able to continue to work alongside such a dedicated group of Catholic leaders. Our trustees truly care about our students, and that’s an important part of what they do and how they make their decisions.”
One upcoming change for the board is that Eikre is set to retire in January, 2019. Dr. Derek Haime will be taking over her position in February. Eikre says that the returning team of trustees has the skills and experience to help Haime transition into his new role.
“The stability will really help with that transition. They truly are leaders, and they support our students and our parents and our staff. Our trustees, along with Dr. Haime, will continue to grow what we’ve done in the academics, athletics and arts, and they’ll be able to make things even better for all of our students.”
Haime will become the Kenora Catholic District School Board’s fifth Director of Education.
