At the Inaugural Board Meeting held this evening, trustees elected Scott McMillan as Chair of the Board and Ted Martin as Vice-Chair. Trustee McMillan was first elected in 2014 to represent the townships of Woolwich and Wellesley.
“Selecting a first-term trustee as Chair signals that this board is ready to take on challenges,” said Scott McMillan, chair of the board of trustees. “As trustees, we have good intentions and I believe in us individually and as a group. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy and I look forward to serving this board in the role as chair as we implement our strategic plan.”
Trustee Martin was first elected in 1997 and previously served as Chair in 2014.
“I want to thank trustees for this opportunity to serve as vice-chair,” said trustee Ted Martin. “I look forward to continuing with our focus on student achievement and well-being as we continue to put students first, each and every one.”
“I offer my congratulations to Trustee McMillan on their election as Chair,” said out-going Chairperson Kathleen Woodcock. “I look forward to working with them as trustee for Waterloo Wilmot as we continue working together implementing our new strategic plan.”
Director of Education John Bryant said “It has been an honour to work with Trustee Woodcock for the past two years as she served as Chair of the Board. Moving forward, we remain focused on implementing our strategic plan and our operational goals of mathematics, wellness and graduation rates and look forward to the support of trustees as we work to reach these goals.”
